16 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with The Public Enemy, produced by Warner Bros. in 1931, James Cagney established a new cultural type on the American screen and in the world's imagination. That "type," later developed by Humphrey Bogart and John Garfield, was the urban tough guy - small, wiry, savvy, and street-smart. Often presented as a gangster, newspaper reporter, or private eye, the "city boy" seemed the quintessential product of urban America, although he was more a model for his

Global neorealism : the transnational history of a film style( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intellectual, cultural, and film historians have long considered neorealism the founding block of post-World War II Italian cinema. Neorealism, the traditional story goes, was an Italian film style born in the second postwar period and aimed at recovering the reality of Italy after the sugarcoated moving images of Fascism. Lasting from 1945 to the early 1950's, neorealism produced world-renowned masterpieces such as Roberto Rossellini-s "Roma, citta aperta" ("Rome, Open City", 1945) and Vittorio De Sica's "Ladri di biciclette" ("Bicycle Thieves", 1947). These films won some of the most prestigious film awards of the immediate postwar period and influenced world cinema. This collection brings together distinguished film scholars and cultural historians to complicate this nation-based approach to the history of neorealism. The traditional story notwithstanding, the meaning and the origins of the term are problematic. What does neorealism really mean, and how Italian is it? Italian filmmakers were wary of using the term and Rossellini preferred "realism". Many filmmakers confessed to having greatly borrowed from other cinemas, including French, Soviet, and American."

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Silent Screens, photographer Michael Putnam captures the once prominent cinemas in decline and transformation. His photographs of abandoned movie houses and forlorn marquees are an elegy to this disappearing cultural icon."

Liebs as well as excerpts from the works of poet John Hollander and writers Larry McMurtry and John Updike."--Jacket

Minding muscle: The technologies of bodybuilding from the turn-of-the-century machine-man to the new millennium's ULTRAGIRL(TM) by Jacqueline Eileen Brady( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the development of bodybuilding in North America, tracing it from its rise at the turn of the century to its resurgence today. Bodybuilding is alternately viewed as a disciplinary practice, a technology of the self, and a site wherein politics, economics, and discourses intersect. Each chapter studies a bodybuilder who embodies a discursive shift due to innovations in technologies of the body: These secondary representational technologies--the vaudeville stage, photography, documentary film, and autobiography--further mediate the bodybuilder's self-made, bodybuilt form
