In The Philosophy of TV Noir, Steven M. Sanders and Aeon J. Skoble argue that the legacy of film noir classics such as The Maltese Falcon, Kiss Me Deadly, and The Big Sleep is also found in episodic television from the mid-1950s to the present. In this first-of-its-kind collection, contributors from philosophy, film studies, and literature raise fundamental questions about the human predicament, giving this unique volume its moral resonance and demonstrating why television noir deserves our attention." "With this focus on the philosophical dimensions of crime, espionage, and science fiction series, The Philosophy of TV Noir draws out the full implications of film noir and establishes TV noir as an art form in its own right."--BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780813124490 Contents: Dragnet, film noir, and postwar realism / R.

Screened out : playing gay in Hollywood from Edison to Stonewall / Richard Barrios
New York: Routledge, 2003.
Call No: 749.4 (71) BAR Author: Barrios, Richard Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Routledge PubDate: 2003 PhysDes: xiv, 402 p. : ill. ; 23 cm Subject: HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CINEMA. USA; SEXUALITY AND THE CINEMA; CHARACTERIZATION IN FILMS Summary: "Rapacious dykes, self-loathing closet cases, hustlers, ambiguous sophisticates, and sadomasochistic rich kids: most of what America thought it knew about gay people it learned at the movies." "Screened Out is a look at sexuality in the Great Age of Movie-making. Spanning popular American cinema from the early 1900s until today, Richard Barrios offers a compulsively readable analysis of how Hollywood has used and depicted gays, and the mixed signals it has given us: Marlene in a top hat, Cary Grant in a negligee, a pansy cowboy in The Dude Wrangler - iconoclastic images that could shock and entertain simultaneously. The screen, Barrios argues, offered powerful messages about tragedy and oppression and, sometimes simultaneously, could also strike notes of freedom and compassion."
"Mining studio records, scripts, drafts and cut scenes, censor notes, reviews, and recollections of viewers, Barrios paints our fullest picture yet of how gays and lesbians were portrayed by the dream factory. He also offers a pointed warning: we shouldn't congratulate ourselves quite so much on the progress movies - and the real world - have made since Stonewall."--BOOK JACKET.
