Gathering together thirteen original essays by scholars in the US, UK, and Australia, as well as Steve Neale's ground-breaking article on the male spectacle, this collection looks beyong the seemingly unassailable monolithic understanding of the 'masculine' which has previously dominiated most film criticism.
Ranging from Valentino to Schwarzeneeger, from the musical to the horror film. from close readings to 'queer' readings, the essays all differ in their critical method and historical focus. But whatever their specific interest, each essay holds a strong concern with issues that film studies has repeatedly linked to the feminine without considering how they relate as well to the masculine: spectacle, masochism, passivity, masquerade and, most of all, the body as it signifies gendered, racial, class and generational differences." -- BOOK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexes ISBN: 0415077583; 0415077591 (pbk.)

In it, Peter Bart pulls together his best columns from Variety and GQ. He groups them, juxtaposes them, and interprets them, outlining in detail the history and inner workings of Hollywood. This could only be done by someone powerful enough to phone any star or head of studio and have his calls taken on the first ring. In story after story, Bart shows how the major studios haver diverted thie energies away from production of the shrewdly crafted pictures that once made the industry powerful. There isn't, for example, much range or innovation in the movies of salable objects- natural disasters, aliens, dinosaurs, ghosts, monsters, or any combination thereof. All are subjects easily parlayed into theme-park environments, action figures, video games, and clothing lines. Similarly, since Jaws twenty years ago, there's been a very short list of acceptable settings. The 1998 Academy Award nominations for best picture all went to films set in Elizabethian times or during World War II. A few years ago it looked as though Pulp Fiction and other independent films were going to save showbiz. Now independent producers like Miramax and New Line have been acquired by the conglomerates. Who and what will resurrect Hollywood? Peter Bart has the answers." - BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes index ISBN: 1580631169 LON: 21362029 More info
