Entry: kliegs (n.)
In context: "Marrow said his late dad had used a somewhat less snazzy IV-model Husky back in his early days of making art-films, when he also used a homemade dolly and sandbags and halogen lights instead of kliegs."
Definition: In full, klieg light. Orig., a kind of arc lamp invented for use as a studio light; hence, any powerful electric light used in film-making, or in television.
Other: I was wondering what they looked like - basically they're my internal image of what a 'movie light' looks like.
