520    Albert Maysles has created some of the most influential 
       documentaries of the postwar period. Such films as 
       Salesman, Gimme Shelter, and Grey Gardens continue to 
       generate intense debate about the ethics and aesthetics of
       the documentary form. In this in-depth study, Joe 
       McElhaney offers a novel understanding of the historical 
       relevance of Maysles. By closely focusing on Maysles's 
       expressive use of his camera, particularly in relation to 
       the filming of the human figure, this book situates 
       Maysles's films within not only documentary film history 
       but film history in general, arguing for their broad-
       ranging importance to both narrative film and documentary 
       cinema. Complete with an engaging interview with Maysles 
       and a detailed comparison of the variant releases of his 
       documentary on the Beatles (What's Happening: The Beatles 
       in the U.S.A. and The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit), this
       work is a pivotal study of a significant filmmaker.
