Stardom and Performance Quotes:
“Movie actors therefore learn to control and modulate behaviour to fit a variety of situations, suiting their actions to a medium that might view them at any distance, height, or angle and that sometimes changes the vantage point within a single shot.”
– James Naremore, Acting in the Cinema (Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1988), 21.
“Performance is what the performer does in addition to the actions/functions s/he performs in the plot and the lines s/he is given to say. Performance is how the action/function is done, how the lines are said.”
– Richard Dyer, Stars (London: BFI Publishing, 1979), 134.
