  • Menus For Movieland: Newspapers and the Emergence of American Film Culture
           1913-1916 by Richard Abel (review)
    • Abstract: Richard Abel is arguably the foremost expert on film culture during the early 1900s. Abel has previously explored the topic in works such as Red Rooster Scare: Making Cinema American, 1900-1910 and Americanizing the Movies and "Movie-Mad" Audiences 1910-1914. During these years, movies were very much an experimental medium that hinged on trial and error. While movies were finding their footing, audiences were also helping formulate what it meant to be a filmgoer.In Menus for Movieland, Abel looks specifically at how newspapers played a role in creating what we now call film culture in America. During this time, newspapers worked quite literally as "menus" for daily life. Newspapers helped readers make many ... Read More

  • Reform Cinema in Iran: Film and Political Change in the Islamic Republic
           by Blake Atwood (review)
    • Abstract: The cinema of post-revolution Iran confounded expectations when it made its international breakthrough on the festival circuit in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Few were expecting Iran, maligned by the western media as a repressive Islamic republic, to export such a major national cinema infused with humanism, poetic neorealism and narrative playfulness. This perceived discrepancy between Iran's domestic politics and artistic output has inspired much critical discourse, including works by Hamed Naficy, Negar Mottahedeh and Saeed Zeydabadi-Nejad, that have situated Iranian cinema's renaissance following the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the Iran-Iraq War (1980-88).Blake Atwood's contribution adds to this ...

  • Devil in the Details: The Uncanny History of The Witch (2015)
    • Abstract: What can the horror film teach us about history' Robert Eggers's breakout horror film, The Witch (2015), is striking both for its chilling depiction of witchcraft in 1630s New England and for its unusual commitment to historical authenticity. In presenting the story of a Puritan family victimized by supernatural forces in the American wilderness, Eggers undertook an "aggressively accurate portrait of the time period…and the fears it contained," as Lauren Duca explains. The director spent three years researching his subject, working with historians at Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts; scrupulously studying details of seventeenth-century colonial life; consulting manuals on subjects ranging from Calvinism to ...

  • "It's too late…Not for me": The Graduate (1967) and the History of
           Women
    • Abstract: Mike Nichols's The Graduate has been called "a Sixties emblem,"1 and with good reason: the film illustrates some of the defining aspects of the decade, including the hypersensitivity to a generation gap, the radicalization of sexual mores, and the anti-establishment search for authenticity. Yet a major element of the film has been ignored for a half century: the emerging women's movement. Unsurprisingly, the central female characters, Mrs. Robinson and her daughter, Elaine, gained rather shallow attention at the time of the film's release in 1967. More surprisingly, critical commentary on the two characters since then has continued to lack sufficient analysis. More directly for historians and educators, The ... Read More

  • A Companion to the War Film ed. by Douglas Cunningham and John Nelson
           (review)
    • Abstract: Considered as a whole, editors Douglas A. Cunningham and John C. Nelson's A Companion to the War Film does not have the same coherence of preceding edited volumes on the genre, such as Peter Rollins and John O'Connor's Why We Fought: America's Wars in Film and History. But this book's lack of a constraining theme (beyond "war") is arguably what allowed the editors to collect and curate path-breaking essays that foreshadow new directions for the study of war films. To be fair, Cunningham informally organizes the book into "five areas of interest" in a short introduction: "the war film and history; the historiography of the war film as a genre; race and gender issues in the war film; the war film outside the ...

Mary Desjardins accurately introduces her book as a remedy to the problem that this popular series "has received little in-depth or sustained critical attention from television scholars" (1). In a compact portion of the introduction worth quoting at length, Desjardins outlines numerous points of interest: "I will use textual and extra-textual evidence to analyze the stylistic, generic, and industrial practices exemplified by Father Knows Best in relation to the social and cultural contexts in which the program was ...

  • Show Trial: Hollywood, HUAC, and the Birth of the Blacklist by Thomas
           Doherty (review)
    • Abstract: Reading Thomas Doherty's Show Trial is like time traveling to October 1947 with an expert film historian by your side. A prequel of sorts to his earlier book Cool War, Cool Medium (2003), Show Trial retraces the many steps that led to Congress's investigation of communist infiltration in Hollywood, only without "the lenses of left and right" that tend to frame other histories of HUAC (356). Not always satisfied with the official Congressional Record, for instance, Doherty turns to several contemporaneous sources, ranging from periodicals to studio correspondence, for a fuller understanding of events, in the process revealing just how "cinema-centric" the hearings could be (355). Show Trial's commitment to detail ... Read More

  • Political Theory and Film: From Adorno to Žižek by Ian Fraser
           (review)
    • Abstract: If all films are political, as Christian Zimmer famously asserted, then the entire literature on cinema, too, can be said to explore the interconnections between the medium and the total complex of relations between people living in society. Even the studies that conceive of politics not in that broadest sense in which politics is defined by the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, but in the narrowest one–as the art or science of government–occupy several shelves in the cinema section of the library where this reviewer is writing. To the corpus of scholarship among those books that explores films in relation to concepts of political theory, Ian Fraser has added an accessible and engaging–albeit questionably ... Read More

  • Assimilating the Feminist Voice in Service Comedies, 1941-1980
    • Abstract: During the 1940s and '50s, Hollywood produced "service" comedies that dramatized the ordinary civilian's adjustment to military life, a transformation necessary to defeat the Nazis and the Japanese and then to contain the communists. But the transformation was also necessary to maintain the tenets of a conservative, masculinist culture. In the service-comedy genre, reforming a citizen into a soldier through basic training established the fundamental trope of assimilation. For men, this assimilation confirmed their status as contributing citizens. For women, however, especially with films that placed a woman at the narrative center of basic training, the assimilation of the recruit complicated the status of women ... Read More

  • Robin Wood on the Horror Film: Collected Essays and Reviews ed. by Barry
           Keith Grant (review)
    • Abstract: Barry Keith Grant has edited some of the most important books on the horror film. The Dread of Difference transformed my engagement with horror and gender and the Film Genre Reader IV provides a wonderful survey of genre studies more generally. His latest, Robin Wood on the Horror Film: Collected Essays and Reviews, corrals all but one of Wood's writings on the horror genre. Grant notes that the sole missing piece is a short plot summary of Next of Kin published in Monthly Film Bulletin (x). Thus, the book contains a collection of reprinted essays written by one critic on a single genre—a delightful resource for those, like me, interested in horror studies and genre criticism.Arguably, the most read essay of Wood's ...

  • The Palgrave Handbook of Posthumanism in Film and Television by Michael
           Hauskeller, Thomas Philbeck, and Curtis Carbonell (review)
    • Abstract: Science fiction has served the film industry like a dreamy stepchild. It gets only scant accolades from its master but must do heavy lifting: that is, make money. While science-fiction films often emphasize spectacle and action, they also inspire philosophical contemplation. Why' Science fiction, dating back to Shelley and Verne, came into existence speculating about humanity's social and physical worlds. Many books and articles over the past several years discuss the philosophical issues that films raise. One fairly new school of thought, "posthumanism," explicitly deriving from postmodernism, with touches of critical theory, has seized on science-fiction movies as support for its theorizing.This volume and its 42 ...

  • Specters of Slapstick and Silent Film Comediennes by Maggie Hennefeld
           (review)
    • Abstract: For feminist scholars, comedy has long been a fraught and polarizing topic. Citing theories of the comic that position laughter as a form of ridicule and social control, many have critiqued humor for its patriarchal oppression and violence toward women. At the same time, others have attempted to rescue comedy, arguing for its potential to upset social hierarchy and lampoon the status quo. This is why, as Maggie Hennefeld argues in Specters of Slapstick and Silent Film Comediennes, a large portion of female slapstick films from the 1890s-1910s has been left unexamined. That they do not fit easily into either side of the above opposition has resulted in their relative absence from many feminist histories of comedy or ... Read More

  • 1939: Hollywood's Greatest Year by Thomas S. Hischak (review)
    • Abstract: Unlike other books on the "golden" film year of 1939, Thomas S. Hischak's 1939: Hollywood's Greatest Year discusses the majority of films from that year–not just the classics–in a daily format, mingling movie releases with news of the day. Such tight ordering of his subjects has served Hischak well in earlier books including Through the Screen Door: What Happened to the Broadway Musical When It Went to Hollywood (2004) and American Literature on Stage and Screen: 525 Works and Their Adaptations (2012).In 1989, Ted Sennett wrote Hollywood's Golden Year, 1939: A Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration, which presented the classic 1939 films (Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Stagecoach, and ...

Think of John Ford and John Wayne and you might imagine a triumphalist, violent, strutting Americana, and you wouldn't be entirely wrong. Sue Matheson's The Westerns and War Films of John Ford would show you, though, that your opinion was awfully incomplete. This exhaustively researched and elegantly written study convincingly argues that when it comes to John Ford and his westerns and war films, what meets the eye is much more than you might think.A professor at the University College of the North in Manitoba and an accomplished film scholar, Matheson is the author of, among other works, Love in Western Film and ...

  • The Ambivalent Treatment of Counter-cultural Identity in the "Outlaw
           Biker" Film, 1966-72
    • Abstract: Although the "outlaw biker" film that flourished from roughly 1966 to 1972 in the U.S. represented the youth rebellion and countercultural social identity of the period—reveling in the sordid milieu of alternative lifestyles, in the rejection of "mainstream" social values, and in the mobilization of anarchic or nihilistic practices—this seemingly disruptive sub-genre rejected the very politics of countercultural identity that it was appropriating, instead echoing most of the conservative, rather than the liberal, critiques that were circulating during the period. Critical discussion of the genre has advanced a simplistic view of how biker films resonated with period-specific discourses of youth culture and identity ... Read More

Anyone familiar with Mordden's work such as Beautiful Mornin': The Broadway Musical in the 1940s (Oxford, 1999) knows he has the ability to describe the shows of an era that he did not experience personally but through methodical research at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center and original cast recordings can write about them so ...

Both books fulfil the objective of the series to provide concise and accessible introductions to the topics under review.The History of Cinema provides an international overview of 120 years of cinema. The book opens with an engaging introduction that probes the concepts of both history and cinema, with Nowell-Smith explaining that the latter is no one thing: "Cinema is films, the machinery that makes them, and the places where people go to see them. It is a technology, an industry, an art form, a ... Read More

  • A Place of Darkness: The Rhetoric of Horror in Early American Cinema by

    • Abstract: In A Place of Darkness, Kendall R. Phillips examines the relationship between early American cinema and the horror genre. While this is not a new topic of study, what makes Phillips's book unique is his use of rhetorical analysis to assess the way contemporary discourse described the features that later become horror conventions. Phillips imagines this endeavor as a bridge for the two currently divided strands of critical thought on the genre's origins, which breaks down into those who cite the release of Tod Browning's Dracula in 1931 as an inception point due to the film's self-characterization as horror, and those who ignore discursive perspectives by focusing instead on the constitutive elements of early ...

  • When Warners Brought Broadway to Hollywood, 1923-1939 by Martin Shingler

    • Abstract: Martin Shingler's book transcends the promise of its title, which suggests a focused historical studio study. Not that Warner Brothers between 1923 and 1939 is not a rich area of inquiry. The studio has long fascinated scholars as the most technologically inventive and socially conscious studio of classical era Hollywood. Its output represents revolutions in sound technology through Vitaphone and boundary pushing subject matter through genres such as the gangster film, backstage musical, and women's picture. As the title suggests, Shingler's book examines this history as indicative of a rapidly evolving entertainment industry built upon a confluence of Broadway and Hollywood talent. It repositions the studio's ... Read More

  • Medieval Saints and Modern Screens: Divine Visions as Cinematic Experience
           by Alicia Spencer-Hall (review)
    • Abstract: It is not every day that one finds medieval scholarship, film theory, popular culture and theology braided together in an accessible and provocative volume. In Alicia Spencer-Hall's Medieval Saints and Modern Screens, the author accomplishes just this; the book is a melding of medieval hagiography, mysticism, media and fandom studies, taking the reader through often surprising parallels between these and other disciplines. For Spencer-Hall, modern cinema and computer screens share an aesthetic similar to the divine visions of medieval female saints, bridging the vast temporal divide between these two forms of media. As Spencer-Hall quotes Bruno Latour, "[w]e do have a future and a past, but the future takes the ... Read More

What makes this a truly valuable work, however, is her strongly applied methodology of "intermediality." Not that dissimilar from intertextuality, scholars following this approach bring together different media, in this case writing and film, to illustrate their historical crossover influences. Stead also emphasizes another element: namely the roles played by gender, and specifically, the incorporation of women's ... Read More

  • Dancing with the Nation: Courtesans in Bombay Cinema by Ruth Vanita
           (review)
    • Abstract: The courtesan is an enduring figure within South Asian visual and literary cultures. She is also an uncomfortable figure to talk about–one that has been constantly re-worked and redefined during the colonial period, in social reformer narratives and in nationalist debates about ideal womanhood, often tied to a mythical Hindu past. In Dancing with the Nation, Ruth Vanita takes a comprehensive sample of 235 films to examine courtesans and courtesan imagery in Bombay cinema. Vanita notes that only one study, in Hindi, has seriously considered the role of courtesans in films and that courtesans are missing in studies of cinematography; they are typically mentioned in passing as the 'other' and/or as antagonists in the ...
