Who shot the Sheriff? : the rise and fall of the television western by J. Fred MacDonald( Book )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the rise and fall of an American genre of entertainment and communication whose symbols and rhetoric helped define American society for decades. Flourishing in the 1950s and 1960s, the television Western has deteriorated to the point where it is now irrelevant and meaningless. Tracing the evolution of the Western from the late 1940s to the 1980s, the author ties the genre to the political innocence and confidence of the Cold War years and suggests that the social re-evaluations that began in the 1960s undermined the believability of Westerns and their entertainment value. Seeking to understand the demise of the tv Western, the book offers an analysis of the interrelationships between popular culture, television, and sociopolitical development in the United States during the past four decades

Indiqué sur la jacquette : "Les débuts de la télévision coïncident avec la guerre froide. Aux Etats-Unis, la psychose du communisme et l'exaltation de l'American way of life marquent les thèmes, les modes de représentation, le ton des différents genres télévisuels (publicité, séries) et cinématographiques (mélodrame, science fiction). Cette marque peut s'observer encore de nos jours. Intervenant : J. Fred Mac Donald, historien des médias."
