(US, Gordon Douglas, 1954); KISS ME DEADLY (US, Robert Aldrich, 1955); REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (US, Nicholas Ray, 1955) Summary: " An Army of Phantoms- a major new work of film history and cultural criticism from J. Hoberman, one of the foremost film critics writing today addresses the dynamic synergy of American politics and American popular culture during the Cold War's first decade.
Heralded by a mushroom cloud over Hiroshima, the years between 1946 and 1956 brought an explosion of affluence and anxiety. Along with U.S. dominance over Europe and a new war in Asia came the birth of the civil rights movement and the first stirrings of a new youth culture. The period saw the movie industry purged of its political left at the same time as the ideological action hero John Wayne reached the peak of his career.
Analyzing Hollywood's cavalry Westerns, apocalyptic sci-fi flicks, and biblical spectaculars, along with media events, congressional hearings and political campaigns, and drawing on FBI files and studio records, Hoberman has orchestrated a colorful, sometimes surreal pageant wherein Cecil B. DeMille rubs shoulders with Douglas MacArthur, atomic tests are shown on live TV, God talks on the radio, and Joe McCarthy is bracketed with Marilyn Monroe.
Essential reading for film and history buffs, An Army of Phantoms expands on the analysis of the 1960's found in Hoberman's critically acclaimed The Dream Life and offers a lively and astute history of film that is also, to paraphrase Jean-Luc Godard, about the film of history." --Book Jacket.

USA; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1920's Summary: "The birth of the movies is a fresh and unusual exploration into the early days of world cinema by a professional historian. It opens up a whole new range of insights by considering the silent film in its general social context rather than as an isolated art form in its own right. The book sets out the stages by which the cinema developed from its origins as a music hall novelty at the turn of the century into an individual means of entertainment and thence- at the end of the 1920s- into big business. This transition was reflected in the replacement of converted back rooms by cheap nickelodeans and then by giant picture palaces, when customers were called patrons and full symphony orchestras played in the pit. The California movie rush of the 1920s is compared to the gold rush of 1849; the dominant Hollywood star system and values are discussed from a social and economic viewpoint - trade is shown to follow the movie; early attempts at censorship are described, and the crude propoganda of the patriotic war films of the Firts World War is set alongside the more sophisticated political methods of Eisenstein (who believed that the film was 'as terrible a weapon as the hand grenade') and of the agit-trains that rolled across post-rolled Russia. Nor are the personalities (Mary Pickford, Chaplin, Keaton, D.W Griffith, etc.) or the aesthetics of the early cinema ignored. The book ends with the coming of the talkies, which were to revolutionize the film industry. Chaplin feared that talking would destroy the illusion of cinema; certainly it put an end to the eolquent silence of a very special and well-developed art." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes index.; Bibliography: p. -188.

Hoberman delivers a brilliant and witty look at the decade when politics and pop culture became one. This was the era of the Missile Gap and the Space Race, the Black and Sexual Revolutions, the Vietnam War and Watergate - as well as the tele-saturation of the American market and the advent of Pop art. In "elegant, epigrammatic prose" (A.O Scott), Hoberman moves from the political histories of movies to the theater of wars, national political campaigns, and pop-culture events. With entertaining reinterpretations of key Hollywood movies such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Wild Bunch, and Shampoo, and meditations on personages ranging from John Wayne and Patty Hearst to Jane Fonda, Ronald Reagan, and Che Guevara. Hoberman reconstructs the hidden poltical history of 1960s cinema and the spectacular formation of America's mass-mediated politics" -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Originally published: 2003 ISBN: 1565849787 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction: "suddenly...It's 1960!" -- I.
