Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Bryant Lang, Jr., A.S.C. (July 4, 1901, Bluff, Utah - April 3, 1998, Santa Monica, California ) was an American cinematographer. Early in his career he worked with the Akeley camera, a gyroscope-mounted "pancake" camera designed by Carl Akeley for outdoor action shots. Lang's first credits were as co-cinematographer on the silent films The Night Patrol (1926) and The Loves of Ricardo (1927). After completing Tom Sawyer for Paramount Pictures in 1930, he continued working at the studio for more than twenty years. The style of lighting he introduced in A Farewell to Arms became heavily identified with all of Paramount's films during the 1930s and 1940s, though he occasionally worked for other studios, for instance on The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947).show more
