The Dynamic Frame: Camera Movement in Classical Hollywood

2.x22 Chandu the Magician

Early horror films sometimes take the strangeness of the moving camera and turn it into an asset. In Chandu the Magician, the camera’s inhuman ability to fly through space evokes the mystical powers of a crystal ball. See The Cat and the Canary (1.x17) and The Bat Whispers (2.x21) for comparable examples.
