I saw a wonderful film on TCM last week called Paris Blues, starring
Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Sidney Poitier, Diahann carroll, and Louis
Armstrong! Some wonderful shots of Paris, not to mention a great score.

Hi Everyone,


One of our fine Film Studies faculty (Italian cinema aficionado)
approached me today, and asked "a weird" request (his words), if I knew
of film with prime examples of tracking shots of Paris (beginning of
cinema to present)? These can be anywhere in Paris, and even include
aerial shots though that is apparently not technically tracking
<> . I am still in the
process of learning my film technique, but I told him his question was
not weird and I knew of some kind folks who might be able to help. If I
need further information, do inquire.


So have at it: prime film examples of Paris tracking shots.

It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
