Recursos narrativos en la comedia muda de Hollywood

Producción científica: Artículo en revista indizadaRecensiónrevisión exhaustiva


Silent comedy in Hollywood's early cinema is based on expressive and narrative resources that show the non-explicit desire for experimentation in the genre, as well the intention to amuse the audience. Consciously or unconsciously, the first directors and actors of those movies assumed the conventions of thea-tre, pantomime and some literature to offer works which were very free in both form and content, and which would be highly influential in the future. This article shows the principal characteristics and the treatment of these resources (automatism, quid pro quo, violence and transgressions, eroticism and transvestism) through key personalities of that period: Mack Sennett, Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Roscoe Arbuckle among others.
