This chapter describes the use of the Arriflex 35 in the 1950s. American filmmakers recognized the value of the Arriflex for shooting shorts and documentaries for theatrical distribution. In television production, the Arriflex 35 was used in news, sports, and documentary shooting, and in dramatic production. Arriflexes were also increasingly used in feature film production. In most of these cases, the Arriflex served as a secondary camera for getting special shots—shots that would be difficult or even impossible to attempt with a studio Mitchell.
