Hardcover. 216 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 0.8in.The Films of Vincente Minnelli examines the career of MGMs leading director of musicals, melodramas, and comedies in the 1940s and 1950s. Widely admired for his flamboyant sense of color and camera movement, Minnelli played a crucial role in maintaining the studios reputation as the home of the stars. Describing the directors contributions to some of the most celebrated works of Hollywoods golden era, this volume also includes a close analysis of five important films that represent the full range of Minnellis career: Cabin in the Sky, Meet Me in St. Louis, Father of the Bride, The Bad and the Beautiful, and Lust for Life. These lively readings provide commentary on problems of genre, directorial style, cultural politics, and the connection between aestheticism and mass culture during the first half of the twentieth century.

About this title:
"Naremore's feeling for ideological nuance becomes translated into a textual alertness and a sense of detail rarely encountered in academic film study. One emerges from this book with the same sense of renewal one would get from seeing a Minnelli film in a restored print." Cineaste
"...surprisingly informative and thought-provoking. As the author points out in his introduction, he has tried not only to discuss Minnelli's work but also provide 'insights into the romantic imagination, American show business, and commodity culture in general.' All this he has done--and done it well." Anthony Slide, Classic Images
