The president electric : Ronald Reagan and the politics of performance / Timothy Raphael
Ann Arbor Mich.: University of Michigan Press, 2009.
Call No: 81REA RAP Author: Raphael, Timothy Source: US Place: Ann Arbor Mich. Publisher: University of Michigan Press PubDate: 2009 PhysDes: ix, 271 p. ; 23 cm Series: Theater: theory, text, performance Subject: CAPITALISM AND THE CINEMA; POLITICS AND THE CINEMA. USA; POLITICS IN THE CINEMA; PRESIDENTS [USA] IN FILMS; Reagan, Ronald Summary: "While Ronald Reagan first entered politics in 1965, his public profile as a performer in radio, film, television, and advertising and his experience in public relations proved invaluable political assets. By the time he left office in 1989, the media in which he trained had become the primary source for generating and wielding political power. The President Electric: Ronald Reagan and the Politics of Performance reveals how the systematic employment of the techniques and technologies of mass-media performance contributed to Reagan's rise to power and defined his style of governance. The President Electric stands out among books on Reagan as the first to bring the rich insights of the field of perfoemance studies to an understanding of the Ronald Reagan phenomenon, connecting Reagan's training in electronic media to the nineteenth century notion of the "fiat of electricity" - the emerging sociopolitical power of three entities (mechanical science, corporate capitalism, and mass culture) that electric technology made possible. The book describes how this new regime of cultural and political representation shaped the development of the electronic mass media that transformed American culture and politics and educated Ronald Reagan for his future role as president." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes notes, works cited list and index.

The president's ladies : Jane Wyman and Nancy Davis / Dick F. Bernard
Jackson [Mississippi]: University Press of Mississippi, 2014.
Call No: 802.27 DIC Author: Dick, Bernard F. Source: US Place: Jackson [Mississippi] Publisher: University Press of Mississippi PubDate: 2014 PhysDes: viii, 278 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: WYMAN, JANE; DAVIS, NANCY; REAGAN RONALD; ACTORS; POLITICAL PERSONALITIES IN FILMS Summary: "Ronald Reagan, a former actor and one of America's most popular presidents, married not one but two Hollywood actresses. This book is three biographies in one, discovering fascinating connections among Jane Wyman (1917-2007), Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), and Nancy Davis (b. 1921). Jane Wyman, who married Reagan in 1940 and divorced him seven years later, knew an early life of privation. She gravitated to the movies and made her debut at fifteen as an unbilled member of the chorus, then toiled as an extra for four years until she finally received billing. She proved herself as a dramatic actress in The Lost Weekend, and the following year, she was nominated for an Oscar for The Yearling and soon won for her performance in Johnny Belinda, in which she did not speak a single line. Other Oscar nominations followed, along with a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Angela Channing in Falcon Crest.Conversely, Nancy Davis led a relatively charmed life, the daughter of an actress and the stepdaughter of a neurosurgeon. Surrounded by her mother's friends--Walter Huston, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Lillian Gish, and Alla Nazimova, her godmother--Davis started in the theater, then moved on to Hollywood, where she enjoyed modest success, and finally began working in television. When she married Reagan in 1952, she unwittingly married into politics, eventually leaving acting to concentrate on being the wife of the governor of California, and then the wife of the president of the United States. In her way, Davis played her greatest role as Reagan's friend, confidante, and adviser in life and in politics. This book considers three actors who left an indelible mark on both popular and political culture for more than fifty years." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781617039805 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2014 Contents: 1.The Abandoned Child -- 2.The Name below the Title -- 3.Jane and Ronnie -- 4.Slouching toward Stardom -- 5.Reaganless for the Duration---and Beyond -- 6.Angel in the Wings -- 7.Highs and Lows -- 8.Going for the Gold -- 9.Frontier Gal -- 10.Strange Interlude -- 11.And the Winner Is -- 12.The Non-Marrying Kind -- 13.These Three -- 14.The Rest---and Best---of Reagan -- 15.Stars in Her Eyes -- 16.Twinkie, Twinkle, Little Starlet -- 17.Nancy at Tiffany's -- 18.The Empress of Ice Cream -- 19.Post-Oscar Blues -- 20.The Last Picture Shows -- 21.A Cathedral and a Conversion -- 22.Zinging with Bing -- 23.Glass Animals and Blue Veils, Cabbages and Couture -- 24.Addio del passato -- 25.I Do, I Don't, I Do, I Don't -- 26.The Actress and the Octopus -- 27.The Actress and the Auteur -- 28.The Beginning of the End -- 29.Worlds Elsewhere -- 30.From the Hearth to the Vineyards -- 31.Unholy Families More info
