Can anybody point me to any good academic references or other solid
references on the history of collage film? I am especially interested
in when, historically, the term collage first became associated with
cinema rather than works on paper or canvas, and in the
differentiation historically between cinematic montage and the use of
cinematic collage, including the appropriation of found footage. Was
the term in use in the late 1950s and early 1960s when filmmakers like
Robert Breer and others began experimenting with the collage film
form, or was it applied by later artists and/or scholars?

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas!
