  • Race and Media in 21st-Century Classrooms
    • Abstract: Racial regimes are subsequently unstable truth regimes. During a class screening of the 1961 film Raisin in the Sun (Dir. Daniel Petrie, Columbia Pictures) in a course I was teaching last year called “Blacks, Film & Society,” I had a sudden realization that none of the fifty students in the room had ever seen the film. The class was composed mostly of seniors, students of every description—engineering students to future businessmen or women, a crew of artists/activists who always sat together and commented loudly during screenings, males, females, black, white, Asian-American, several Latinas, and one or two Europeans. Many of the seniors were there to fulfill an ethnic studies requirement. I could ... Read More

  • The Archival Value of Television in the “Golden Age” of Media
           Collecting
    • Abstract: Television’s Golden Age ended almost as quickly as it began, with writers, directors, programmers, and critics pining over the “quality” days of certain live programs. The Golden Age for American television refers to “the medium’s first decade, from 1948–1958, when (or so the myth goes) program forms and norms were not yet entrenched, and the level of ingenuity and sheer talent on display was unparalleled.”1 The live drama anthology was at the heart of this myth, giving “the new medium respectability and prestige,” especially when stage plays and movies were adapted from the television scripts as a “new body of literature.”2 Complicating television historians’ critical assessment of the Golden Age myth is ...

  • All Bad Little Movies When They Die Go to Ralph Spence: The Silent Era’s
           Most Famous Title Writer
    • Abstract: In November of 1927, Variety magazine reported that the marquee for Adam and Evil at the Carmel Picture House read “Starring Lew Cody” on the first line and, below it, “Titles by Ralph Spence” (“Billing Title Writers”). A 1928 snippet in Photoplay magazine later joked of the marquee: “A Hollywood theater announces in electric lights, ‘Titles by Ralph Spence,’ being the first time on record a title-writer rated such billing. But if the titles were NOT by Ralph Spence, THAT would have been news” (“A Hollywood Theater” 100). Newspapers and film magazines regularly dispensed this kind of praise for Spence throughout the 1920s, a rare honor for someone specializing in a field as narrow as title-card ... Read More

  • From The Manchurian Candidate to Zero Dark Thirty: Reading the CIA’s
           History of Torture through Hollywood Thrillers
    • Abstract: During the 2016 US presidential race, Republican Party candidate Donald Trump pledged to “bring back the waterboard and a whole lot worse.” Like all of the other Republican contenders who vied for the 2016 nomination (and eleven of the twelve Republican contenders in the 2012 race), Trump ran on promises to resurrect the torture techniques authorized for use by the CIA after 9/11. The candidates’ collective premise was that these techniques “work,” that the kinds of people subjected to waterboarding and other forms of brutality during interrogation and detention deserved it, and that their cancelation by President Barak Obama in 2009, video footage of which is presented in Zero Dark Thirty, was a mistake. ...

  • Speaking Truths With Film: Evidence, Ethics, Politics in Documentary by
           Bill Nichols (review)
    • Abstract: Speaking Truths With Film: Evidence, Ethics, Politics in Documentary is a compilation of eighteen articles, reviews, and letters written throughout Bill Nichols’s career focusing on the theoretical problems associated with documentary film. The selections included, revised for this publication, are appropriately categorized by section and flow seamlessly as a comprehensive book rather than an edited anthology. Nichols addresses issues ranging from content and form to ethics and politics, the latter of which is presented brilliantly in his final section of the book, which juxtaposes one of his earliest writings on the San Francisco and New York Newsreel organizations—originally published in the late 1960s as ...

  • Carceral Fantasies: Cinema and Prison in Early Twentieth-Century America
           by Alison Griffiths (review)
    • Abstract: Even if you have never stepped foot inside a prison, you probably have some image of what life is like within its walls. Iconic films including Escape from Alcatraz (Don Siegel, 1979), The Shawshank Redemption (Frank Darabont, 1994), and Dead Man Walking (Tim Robbins, 1995), and recent television shows such as HBO’s Oz and The Night Of, Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, and Fox’s Prison Break have shaped the way we think about prisons and those who are incarcerated within them. Alison Griffiths’ Carceral Fantasies: Cinema and Prison in Early Twentieth-Century America delves into the complex and inextricable relationship between prisons and popular media. In this thoroughly researched, methodologically ... Read More

  • Contemporary Masculinities in Fiction, Film and Television by Brian Baker
           (review)
    • Abstract: Building on the work he began in his first book, Masculinity in Fiction and Film: Representing Men in Popular Genres, 1945–2000, Brian Baker’s new book explores the idea of contemporary depictions of specifically British and American masculinities. To do so, he examines examples from literature and fiction to illustrate the changing and complex nature of gender identities for men. Baker reads these modes of masculinity in terms of the crisis narrative, that is, the idea that white men lost their status and power because of progressive movements such as the Civil Rights movement, feminism, and the LGBTQ movement, which allegedly victimized white men. He argues that as a result of 9/11 the narrative of ... Read More

  • Farber on Film: The Complete Film Writings of Manny Farber ed. by Robert
           Polito (review)
    • Abstract: Pauline Kael accurately described Manny Farber as a critic who looked at the “film frame as if it were a painter’s canvas” (xxxiii). What made Farber unique, apart from his also being a painter, was his ability to make words his palette, choosing them carefully to conjure up as accurate an image as possible. To Farber, a film had the properties of language. He found the pace of William Wellman’s The Ox-Bow Incident (1943) “monosyllabic” (73), in its measured inexorability as the action moved slowly toward tragedy. In reviewing Sam Wood’s Pride of the Yankees (1942), Farber was struck by the “talented plainness” (22) of Teresa Wright--a strange juxtaposition of two seemingly unrelated words which, in ...

  • The First King of Hollywood: The Life of Douglas Fairbanks by Tracey
           Goessel (review)
    • Abstract: Tracey Goessel has written a richly detailed and eminently readable biography of the most popular male star in silent film. In restoring Douglas Fairbanks (1883–1939) to his proper place in the silver screen firmament, she has also cast her own light on that seminal era before movies began to talk. Fairbanks was born in Denver, Colorado. In later years he insistently depicted his family background as entirely respectable, maintaining silence about the several previous marriages of his mother and father. His father was Jewish, another fact about which the son kept mum. The acting bug bit him early and, while a teenager, he joined Frederick Warde’s troupe and toured the country for a couple of ...

  • Mexico on Main Street: Transnational Film Culture in Los Angeles Before
           World War II by Colin Gunckel (review)
    • Abstract: Just over a decade ago, Main Street remained part of Los Angeles’ notorious Skid Row, stigmatized as an epicenter that houses one the United States’ largest homeless populations and ostensibly features an abundance of drug activity, violent crime, and all forms of dangerous, illicit behavior. Today, however, tourists walking through Main Street will find themselves overwhelmed by an overflow of traffic, high-rise apartment and business buildings, and seemingly perennial construction sites aimed at redeveloping and modernizing Main Street’s architecture. Of the manifold historical Mexican movie theaters that once pervaded Main Street, only the Regent remains. As Colin Gunckel says of Main Street’s Mexican ... Read More

  • Ghost Faces: Hollywood and Post-Millennial Masculinity by David Greven
           (review)
    • Abstract: The desire to treat American masculinity in a manner that appears to be LGBTQI inclusive is the focus of Professor David Greven’s latest study. Using a combination of queer theory, psychoanalytic film theory, and a discussion of the importance of the Gothic tradition to American literature Greven makes a compelling case that contemporary Hollywood films, as he states, “have largely been an attempt to put the queer genie back in the bottle of straight masculinity” (4). In many ways this new book could be read as a sequel or extension of Greven’s theorizing of masculinity in his previous book Manhood in Hollywood from Bush to Bush (Univ. of Texas Press, 2009). As the 2000s passed, Greven noticed that the films ... Read More

  • Our Gang: A Racial History of the Little Rascals by Julia Lee (review)
    • Abstract: Few decades in U.S. history have been more tumultuous than the 1920s. It was a time when rules about nearly everything—from dress codes to liquor sales—were broken and new rights and freedoms claimed. Yet it was also a decade of fierce backlash, especially where the social position of African-Americans was concerned. The 1920s witnessed the Great Migration, the Harlem Renaissance, the dazzling triumph of jazz, the growth of the black middle class, and the spread of the “New Negro” ideal. At the same time there were riots, lynchings, a surge in KKK membership, and widespread enjoyment of racist humor centered on the types of the kerchief-wearing “mammy,” her lazy “coon” husband, and their child, the shabbily ...

  • The Laughing Dead: The Horror-Comedy Film from Bride of Frankenstein to
           Zombieland ed. by Cynthia J. Miller, A. Bowdoin Van Riper (review)
    • Abstract: Usually death is not all that funny, at least when it happens to someone we know or love. However, when media incorporate such a morbid topic as mortality, especially in the horror genre, certain audiences consume this content like zombies eating brains.. Since the genre’s jump to cinema, audiences have been experiencing a range of reactions, from covering their eyes while screaming advice at the screen like ‘Don’t open that door’ to laughing at the sometimes excessive gore or intentionally cheesy effects. All of these reactions, as well as a thorough history of the horror-comedy subgenre, are covered in The Laughing Dead: The Horror-Comedy Film from Bride of Frankenstein to Zombieland, assembled and ...

  • Reframing the Past: History, Film and Television by Mia E. M. Treacey
           (review)
    • Abstract: Mia Treacey begins her preface with the title “Not another Book on History and Film” (xiii), and in fact this is not just another book on History and Film. It is an essential intervention in history’s critical engagement with the past on film that advances a series of important and convincing arguments about what historians have had to say about the past as it is represented on film and television, where it should go next, and what to call it. Treacey provides an engaging, thorough, and accessible guided tour through the historical debate about history on film from 1898 to the present, reconceptualizing the study of history depicted in film and surveying scholarship siloed by time, geography, and ...

  • Back to the Fifties: Nostalgia, Hollywood Film, and Popular Music of the
           Seventies and Eighties by Michael D. Dwyer (review)
    • Abstract: The memory of the Fifties continues to loom large. According to PRRI, a polling outfit, few matters separated Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton voters more than their view of the relationship between the Fifties and contemporary America. Whereas 70% of Clinton partisans believed American life had improved since the 1950s, 72% of Trump supporters believed the country had declined. Undoubtedly, many Trump voters see the Fifties as a time of national greatness, an era of consensus, strength, and prosperity (especially for blue-collar whites without a college degree), and as a time worth recreating. Such sentiments echo conservative rhetoric of the 1980s and 1990s, rhetoric that often drew strength from popular ... Read More

  • Selling the Silver Bullet: The Lone Ranger & Transmedia Brand
           Licensing by Avi Santo (review)
    • Abstract: Selling the Silver Bullet is an engaging and eminently readable account of what on the surface would seem to be a less than scintillating corner of the media landscape: the licensing of a given character brand to ancillary markets. Santo’s way into this rich area of study is The Lone Ranger, the character invented in the early 1930s by an advertising firm for radio, and who over the next 80 years was depicted in everything from linoleum floors to the infamous 2013 film of the same name. Santo’s primary argument is that we should consider licensing as a form of creative labor. He supports this claim by showing how the companies responsible for the Lone Ranger’s licensing played a crucial role in ... Read More

  • Captain America, Masculinity, and Violence: The Evolution of a National
           Icon by J. Richard Stevens (review)
    • Abstract: The most surprising moment in J. Richard Stevens’s Captain America, Masculinity, and Violence comes not in any of its nine chapters, but on the final page of the endnotes, where Stevens recounts his difficulties obtaining image permissions from Marvel Comics, a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company since 2009. After he yielded to Marvel’s demand that he not use an image of the character on the cover, they asked him “to reduce the number of illustrations from forty-four to ten and to resubmit [his] proposal” (340). He resubmitted, and then received “an objection to [the] book’s ‘scope’” (340). Marvel ignored his two subsequent permissions requests. “I did,” Stevens recounts, “manage to get a member of the ...

  • The Poitier Effect: Racial Melodrama and Fantasies of Reconciliation by
           Sharon Willis (review)
    • Abstract: It is not often that one can say that a scholarly book whose central thesis recedes into the background for lengthy stretches is still successful at developing that thesis convincingly. It is even more rare to be able to say without qualification that such work is also engaging, thought provoking, and insightful. But Sharon Willis’s broad-ranging and raucous examination of what she calls “the Poitier effect” on the last fifty years of Hollywood filmmaking is just such a book. As much a collection of six interrelated essays – an introduction, four substantial body chapters, and a lengthy conclusion – as a unified monograph, this study manages to transcend traits that would doom lesser works to incoherence, a ...

  • Imperial Projections: Screening the German Colonies by Wolfgang Fuhrmann
           (review)
    • Abstract: The German colonial empire did not last very long in the 20th century compared against the British empire (which effectively ended in 1918). The British empire has seen several recent studies involving the subject of colonial cinema including James Burns, Cinema and Society in the British Empire, 1895–1940 (2014) and Lee Grieveson and Colin MacCabe, eds., Empire and Film, (2011). There also exists the useful website “Colonial Film—Moving Images of the British Empire” (www.colonialfilm.org.uk), which contains some 6,000 visual records going back to the 1890s. The German empire simply was not around when a mature cinema developed after World War I. But its brief existence did coincide with the origins and ... Read More
