Decoding the Movies

This book “decodes” 1930s Hollywood movies and explains why they looked and behaved as they did. Representing the summation of Richard Maltby’s four decades of scholarship in the field, it uses a series of case studies to demonstrate how an appreciation of these movies is enhanced by examining the circumstances of their production and consumption.

It argues that fragmentation in public discourse does harm, and that an approach is needed that is able to integrate across perspectives holistically.
