BABE, THE : (US, Arthur Hiller, 1992)
Cinematic canines : Dogs and their work in the fiction film / Edited by Adrienne L. McLean
New Brunswick, N.J.: Rutgers University Press, 2014.
Call No: 738.66 CIN Author: McLean, Adrienne L. (ed.) Place: New Brunswick, N.J. Publisher: Rutgers University Press PubDate: 2014 PhysDes: x, 272 p. ; 24 cm ; Subject: DOGS IN MOTION PICTURES; LASSIE COME HOME (US, Fred M. Willcox, 1943); BABE (AT, Chris Noonan, 1995); BABE: PIG IN THE CITY (AT, George Miller, 1998); THING, THE (US, John Carpenter, 1982); HITCHCOCK, ALFRED; RED DOG (AT, Kriv Stenders, 2011); EIGHT BELOW (US, Frank Marshall, 2006); SOUTH AFRICA; ANTARCTICA Summary: Dogs have been part of motion pictures since the movies began. They have been featured onscreen in various capacities, from any number of “man’s best friends” (Rin Tin Tin, Asta, Toto, Lassie, Benji, Uggie, and many, many more) to the psychotic Cujo. The contributors to Cinematic Canines take a close look at Hollywood films and beyond in order to show that the popularity of dogs on the screen cannot be separated from their increasing presence in our lives over the past century.
The representation and visualization of dogs in cinema, as of other animals, has influenced our understanding of what dogs “should” do and be, for us and with us. Adrienne L. McLean expertly shepherds these original essays into a coherent look at “real” dogs in live-action narrative films, from the stars and featured players to the character and supporting actors to those pooches that assumed bit parts or performed as extras. Who were those dogs, how were they trained, what were they made to do, how did they participate as characters in a fictional universe? These are a just a few of the many questions that she and the outstanding group of scholars in this book have addressed.
Often dogs are anthropomorphized in movies in ways that enable them to reason, sympathize, understand and even talk; and our shaping of dogs into furry humans has had profound effects on the lives of dogs off the screen. Certain breeds of dog have risen in popularity following their appearance in commercial film, often to the detriment of the dogs themselves, who rarely correspond to their idealized screen versions. In essence, the contributors in Cinematic Canines help us think about and understand the meanings of the many canines that appear in the movies and, in turn, we want to know more about those dogs due in no small part to the power of the movies themselves. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780813563558 Contents: Acknowledgments -- Introduction: Wonder Dogs / Adrienne L.

JABE BABE A HEIGHTENED LIFE : (AT, Janet Merewether, 2005)
A land for animals, a space for children : the landscape in Australian family films
Spectator (Fall 2016) vol.36 iss.2 p.15 - 22 Author: Huntington, Eleanor M PhysDes: Article Subject: LANDSCAPES IN FILMS. AUSTRALIA; ANIMALS IN FILMS. AUSTRALIA; BABE (AT, Chris Noonan, 1995); HAPPY FEET (AT/ US, George Miller, 2006); RED DOG (AT, Kriv Stenders, 2011) Summary: In the most successful family films produced and directed by Australians in the last two decades, the Australian landscape and animals' roles in such spaces instruct young viewers how to navigate life in a postcolonial and explicitly multicultural nation. Through close textual readings of Babe, Happy Feet and Red Dog, coupled with analysis of official Australian government policy, this paper argues that the main animal characters deconstruct the paternal/ colonial Anglo - Celtic dominance through their interactions with their landscapes.
