  • The Manic Bodies of Danny Kaye
    • Abstract: The popularity of Danny Kaye in the early 1940s was immediate. In quick succession, he took by storm the Poconos and nightclubs; Broadway, stealing notices from Gertrude Lawrence for his flamboyant supporting character Russell Paxton in 1941's Lady in the Dark; and—headlining for producer Samuel Goldwyn and RKO—the movies, starting with Up in Arms (Elliott Nugent, 1944) and Wonder Man (Bruce Humberstone, 1945). On the face of it, Kaye's rapid rise to Hollywood stardom and leading-man status may seem remarkable, given that his performance style made him so instantly legible as, in Martha Bayless's words, "personally heterosexual, but culturally queer."1 Or as Michael Bronski puts it, with his high "queeny" voice and ...

  • Finding Borderland: Intermediality in the Films of Marc Forster
    • Abstract: As Irina Rajewsky has pointed out in her influential work on the topic, to put intermediality to any practical use, each scholar must first set out precisely what he or she means by it. Having been so widely adopted, particularly since the 1980s, the word has become something of a generalized descriptor for anything that takes place "between media," which is a definition so broad as to be essentially useless.1 Rajewsky also points out that academic work on the concept is in danger of focusing on constantly defining and redefining the term instead of practically applying it. This is something of a frustration, given her suggestion of what such an analytical tool could provide:The sustained success and growing ... Read More

  • Written Out of the Story: Issues of Television Authorship, Reception, and
           Ethnicity in NBC's "Marty"
    • Abstract: When "Marty" first aired in 1953, critics and viewers bestowed "classical" status on the program almost immediately. The weekly installment of NBC's Philco-Goodyear Television Playhouse (1948–1956) captured a wide audience and soon became the first live television drama to be adapted into a feature-length film. The cinematic Marty (Delbert Mann, 1955) would win four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and would further cement the status of "Marty." Today, "Marty" is remembered as one of the best-known and well-documented of early TV offerings. With many live 1950s programs now lost or otherwise unavailable, "Marty" lives on through mass-circulated DVDs and still-in-print collections of Paddy Chayefsky's ... Read More

  • A Tale of Two Movies: Protestants, Catholics, and Prior Censorship in
           Post–World War II Hollywood
    • Abstract: With US church attendance at a high during the late 1950s and early 1960s, Warner Bros. produced two movies back-to-back, both based on novels published in 1956, one featuring a Catholic protagonist and the other a Protestant. The Nun's Story (Fred Zinnemann, 1959), based on a contentious best seller by Kathryn Hulme, featured top talent, starring Oscar winner Audrey Hepburn and directed by two-time Academy Award winner Fred Zinnemann. The story follows the spiritual journey of Gabrielle Van Der Mal (Sister Luke) as she becomes a nun and labors as a surgical nurse in a missionary hospital in the Congo, and then in Belgium after the outbreak of World War II.The Sins of Rachel Cade (Gordon Douglas, 1961) is based on ...

  • Introduction to Newsreel 55: Which Side Are You On?
    • Abstract: In the cinema of independent Slovenia (considered in the field of film history to be a segment of post-Yugoslav cinema), documentary film has lately been gaining ground. While Filmografija slovenskih celovečernih filmov: 1931–2010 (Film-ography of Slovenian feature films: 1931–2010) contains only one documentary title made between the end of World War II and 1991, in recent years the situation has changed to the point that the main awards at the Festival of Slovenian Film, or Festival Slovenskega Filma, have gone to feature-length documentaries. The first title to receive such an award was Miran Zupanič's Otroci s Petrička (Children from Petriček Hill, 2007), a documentary about attempts at ideological ... Read More

  • Newsreel 55: Which Side Are You On?
    • Abstract: The project Newsreel 55 (2013) has a special significance in Slovenian cinema for several reasons. On the one hand, this is because of the dialogue it establishes with its own filmic past, as evidenced by the number in the title, which derives from the fact that fifty-four newsreels were filmed in Slovenia between 1946 and 1951. Thus, the attempt to revive what has perhaps been the most widely exploited documentary genre includes a historical dimension or a welcome correspondence with its historical conditions. The other important point of departure is the fact that Newsreel 55 is a collective project of the Newsreel Front collective, which was constituted during the making of the film. The collective consists of ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The opportunity to assemble an In Focus section dedicated to Asian American film and media, a first for Cinema Journal, is a special moment, bringing a field at least a quarter century in the making into the mainstream of cinema and media studies. But if Asian American media history has taught us anything, it's that crossing over should always give us pause. The Oliver Stone–produced The Joy Luck Club's (Wayne Wang, 1993) cross-generational story of four Chinese American families earned critical acclaim, being placed on Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel's list of top ten films of 1993. All-American Girl (ABC, 1994–1995) debuted in 1994 as the first prime-time sitcom with an all Asian American cast and marked Margaret ... Read More

  • Gnawing at the Whiteness of Cinema Studies: On Asian American Media Now
    • Abstract: Without ambiguity, without ambivalence, we must reject the minoritization of Asian American cinema studies. To relegate Asian American cinema to the margins of our discipline is an epistemological problem that truly disserves an increasingly transnational and nonwhite student body whose presence demands that we halt a myopic understanding of our enterprise as unified. This article argues for increasing the study of Asian American and other racial, ethnic cinema traditions—especially in presenting how filmmakers of color produce and audiences of color watch differently. To recognize the distinct investments filmmakers and spectators of color bring to our discipline is to decenter whiteness, to diversify film and ... Read More

  • Asian American Media Studies and the Problem of Legibility
    • Abstract: In February 2016, I participated in a roundtable discussion about Master of None, the Netflix series created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang (2015–present). Hosted by the Asian Arts Initiative, a multidisciplinary arts center based in Philadelphia's Chinatown, the evening brought together fans of a post–network TV series for a lively discussion. At one point, filmmaker (and curator) Sara Zia Ebrahimi commented that there was a remarkable degree of narrative experimentation across the ten-episode season that may have affected the show's accessibility; it seems likely that a network concerned about building a week-by-week following would not have allowed Ansari and Yang to play with the show's tone and narrative ...

  • What Was Asian American Cinema?
    • Abstract: The year 2016 has had a bumper crop of media controversies involving Asian American representation. Just before their Super Bowl appearance, Coldplay and Beyoncé were criticized for appropriating Indian culture in their video "Hymn for the Weekend" (Ben Mor, 2016). Then, despite (or perhaps because of) the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, comedians Chris Rock and Ali G cracked anti-Asian jokes at the Academy Awards, sparking condemnation from prominent Asian American directors and actors such as Ang Lee and Sandra Oh. Of course, there was the endless stream of poor casting choices, from Tilda Swinton as a Tibetan monk in the comic-book film Doctor Strange (Scott Derrickson, 2016) to Scarlett Johansson as Major Kusanagi ...

  • Nam June Paik and Laurel Nakadate at the Margins of Asian American Film
           and Video
    • Abstract: My 2015 book Making Asian American Film and Video argued that public institutions played a definitive role in the history of Asian American film and video, grounding the genre in the public funding, exhibition, and broadcasting of American independent film and video.1 The book argues that state-funded public institutions like PBS and their policies on multiculturalism shaped the burgeoning genre of Asian American film and video. Recently, a lot of attention has been paid to how online platforms like YouTube have uncovered new possibilities for Asian American filmmakers to thrive, which seems to continue the legacy of communal, institutional filmmaking. And yet what is often minimized in this discourse is the role ... Read More

  • Racial Accents, Hollywood Casting, and Asian American Studies
    • Abstract: In the episode "Indians on TV" of the Netflix comedy series Master of None (2015–present), Emmy Award–winning cocreators Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang chronicle the trials and tribulations of an Indian American man auditioning for acting jobs in the American television and film industry. The protagonist, Dev Shah (Ansari), who is an actor in New York City, questions himself and others about whether or not he should do a "funny Indian accent" to land a role. In discussions with his friends, his agent, casting directors, and network industry decision makers, he muses about why Indians and Asians are sidekicks in most Hollywood plotlines and why there can't be two Indian characters who are friends and talk to each other ...

  • Mixed Race Matters: What Emma Stone and Bruno Mars Can Tell Us about the
           Future of Asian American Media
    • Abstract: Mixed-race Asian Americans are the most logical place to start thinking about the future of Asians in the United States while also being the least likely starting point for a conversation about Asian Americans in the media, especially visual media. Of all newlyweds in 2010, Asian Americans had the highest rate of outmarriage (28 percent).1 Presuming that some of these marriages will also produce children, it seems obvious that mixed-race Asian Americans should be a significant presence in Asian American representations. However, Asians claim a disproportionately small share of conventional visual media in the United States, and mixed-race Asian Americans' portion of that share is smaller still. To locate the future ... Read More

Pham's detailed analysis of their style blogs and cultural influence in her book Asians Wear Clothes on the Internet. In fact, you do not even need to be invested in fashion media; Pham's book is about much more than the title suggests, including the politics of contemporary racial representations, gendered identity performances online, practices of digital and racialized labor, and the ways in which value is produced and circulated within digital economies.In Asians Wear Clothes on the Internet, Pham maps a fascinating cultural history of the Asian personal-style superblogger, a figure that has been prominent in the digital fashion ...

  • Asian American Media Activism: Fighting for Cultural Citizenship by Lori
           Kido Lopez (review)
    • Abstract: With her first book, Asian American Media Activism: Fighting for Cultural Citizenship, Lori Kido Lopez offers a fresh multidisciplinary take for understanding this recurring scenario in the US culture industry: a major network and creative team behind a problematic media production are forced to reckon with the swiftly mobilized opposition of Asian American media activists armed with smartphones and 140 characters. Lopez argues that in such cases, "while the stated goals of media activists might seem immediate—to recast a role, to demand an apology from producers, to hire an Asian American consultant or director, to produce more images of Asian Americans—what goes unstated is the connection between these ...

  • Making Asian American Film and Video: History, Institutions, Movements by
           Jun Okada (review)
    • Abstract: In Making Asian American Film and Video: History, Institutions, Movements, Jun Okada both surveys Asian American independent films and videos from 1970 to the present and carefully examines key representative works from this genre. Ultimately, she asks for more: more Asian American films and videos, more diversity of production, more political effectivity, more complexity, and more awareness of the political, cultural, economic, and social stakes involved in film and video production.The key contribution to scholarship of her book is its focus on Asian American documentary, avant-garde, and fictional films and videos in terms of their institutional production. Noteworthy in her study is the simultaneous emergence ... Read More
