[nice clean copy, extremely light shelfwear to book; very minor surface wear to jacket (others would call it Fine/Fine without blinking, but I'm picky)]. (Gender & American Culture) Series (B&W photographs) This book "explores the representation of gender in popular Hollywood melodramas of the 1950s, the last decade in which film enjoyed a pivotal cultural position. Both a work of feminist film criticism and theory and an analysis of popular culture, this provocative book examines from a cultural studies perspective the top-grossing film melodramas of that decade, including A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, EAST OF EDEN, IMITATION OF LIFE, and PICNIC."
