Arthur Penn

Nat Segaloff

University Press of Kentucky

At a symposium at Dartmouth College, Arthur Penn articulated that while the artist is often perceived to be the one who is least able to judge his own work, this defies the nature of the creative process since an artist has to deconstruct first before he constructs. This final chapter looks into the speech delivered by Arthur Penn at the symposium on May 20, 1968. It examines how this speech contained valuable insights that are both perceptive and reflective. This speech reveals how Arthur Penn did not initially envision himself to be inclined towards the film “industry” since technical norms had already been established. It also reveals more about the experience of Hollywood films as European films were entering the scene, and how the American filmmaker had to face a wide variety of different conflicts and dilemmas.
