Looking Past the Screen:

Case Studies in American Film History and Method

Jon Lewis October 22, 2007
Duke University Press Books

ISBN #978-0822338079

Copyright: 2007 - Duke University Press Books

Film scholarship has long been dominated by textual interpretations of specific films. Looking Past the Screen advances a more expansive American film studies in which cinema is understood to be a social, political, and cultural phenomenon extending far beyond the screen. Presenting a model of film studies in which films themselves are only one source of information among many, this volume brings together film histories that draw on primary sources including collections of personal papers, popular and trade journalism, fan magazines, studio publications, and industry records.
