Streszczenie wykładu:

Onoe Matsunosuke(1892-1926)was a big star of the screen in Japan during his activity between 1909 and 1926. Though most of his films are not extant today, his acting style looks quite peculiar in the surviving prints. If the concept of the movie star of that period is not different from that of today, what makes it so peculiar? Even though most of his films do not survive now and the surviving fragments of his films are generally unseen, his name and his iconography are simply well-known to today’s Japanese people. His presence became a myth of early Japanese cinema.

Onoe Matsunosuke’s name was linked to the Kyugeki film, an indigenous type of Japanese cinema before 1923. This type of cinema was succeeded as the Jidaigeki film after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, but the peculiarity of the movie star in the earlier type of cinema was diminished in the realistic representation for the new audience of Japanese cinema who required the kind of movie stars similar to William S. Hart, a star of Western genre in the American cinema.

Looking at a morph of the movie star will help us understand the essence of the Kyugeki film, a type of Japanese cinema in the very obscure period.
