From the Back Cover:

The father is one of the central figures of Hollywood narrative. Despite this, this is the first book to examine cinematic representations of the father. "Bringing Up Daddy" offers a broad perspective on the Hollywood dad looking at important Hollywood fathers from World War II to the present and discusses films from a variety of genres. The book looks at films decade by decade and adopts a multi-faceted theoretical approach, making use of psychoanalysis, sociology and masculinity studies and contextualising the father figure within both Hollywood and American history. Key films include: "Since You Went Away", "Teresa", "The Search", "Father of the Bride", "Rebel Without a Cause", "Giant", "Home from the Hill", "Cape Fear", "To Kill a Mockingbird", "Jaws", "The Great Santini", "Kramer vs. Kramer", "Ordinary People", "Die Hard", "Terminator", "Three Men and a Baby", "Boyz n the Hood", "Magnolia", "Happiness", and "American Beauty". In its treatment of the father this unique study discusses why the father is such a seminal character in so many narratives and what he has come to symbolise and represent.
