Part four
The Odessa Steps - This is a very famous clip in the history of film. Montage is born! Montage - the combination of pictoral elements to create ideas or related ideas. Eisenstein is usually credited as the first - The Odessa Steps sequence featuring the baby carriage wheels and the old woman's glasses. In this case, the diagonals of the steps (and rifles)combined with the shots of "circle shapes"(the wheels and the glasses) create additional conflict and tension. This is an incredible sequence.
