Main Characteristics of good Composition. A good style, as the late Fitzgerald Hall defines it in one of his posthumous letters, consists in saying in the most perspicuous and succinct way what one thoroughly understands, and saying it so naturally that no effort is apparent This extract mentions three of the qualities of good composition, viz. (1) Perspicuity, or saying in the most perspicuous war what one thoroughly understands;…
These six chapters are preceded by an initial chapter on the Figures of Speech, which have been discussed first, as they lie at the basis of all composition. It will be of great help to a beginner to know what they are and what use can be made of them for the purposes described in the subsequent chapters.

In nineteenth century middle-Europe, orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live with their uncle Gustav Weil, who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out vampirism. But their methods are random and misplaced and the only result is a terrorised populace. The real threat lies with Count Karnstein, and although the twins seem outwardly to be identical, Frieda finds herself much more drawn than her sister to the Count's castle dominating the skyline.

Some like it Sexy is curiously watchable due to its rough hand held camera approach to filmmaking, endless attempts to wed nearly all the action with the title song (plus some surprising top 40 material) and many nostalgic London locales. There's even some low rent surrealism- most noteworthy is the way Peter's conquests are inter cut with scenes of meat being cut up, for some dubious un-pc symbolism. Fans of Hammer films will no doubt be aghast to find twin sisters Mary and Madeleine Collinson the stars of Twins of Evil in some fairly scandalous scenes. There's much kitsch value as well with the unavoidable mindbending LSD sequence and Winter's dedicated follower of fashion, rivaling Austin Powers in his choice of Carnaby Street fashions. The film wasn't released until two years after it was made, apparently in its original version it was not explicit enough and Winter had to shoot some crude `sexy' inserts using very obvious body doubles to ensure a sale..

A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes!
