This article examines the influence of early film theories, those of the 1920s and '30s, on the first scenario for the screen – and the only strictly cinematographic work – written by Beckett : In spite of the facts known thanks to his correspondence, for example Beckett's reading in the 1930s of texts published by Rudolf Arnheim, Vsevolod Pudovkin and Sergei Eisenstein, and in spite of the attention that critics, including Deleuze, have given to Beckett's works for the cinema and television, Beckett's use of these modernist film theories has not been analyzed structurally. Color, sound, close-up : these three hotly debated issues are re-examined by Beckett in the sixties, largely along the lines of early film theory.
