Drawing on iconic films from the era Nystrom presents an incisive, evocative study of labor, class, and American cinema in the wake of Vietnam, women's and gay liberation, the rise of the New Right, and other events that defined the decade" - TAKEN FROM BACK COVER ISBN: 9780195336771 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2012 Contents: Introduction.

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.
