Book Description British Film Institute. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Hollywood Spectatorship: Changing Perceptions of Cinema Audiences, Melvyn Stokes, Richard Maltby, Melvyn Stokes, Richard Maltby, Theoretical notions of the cinema spectator have been at the center of film studies and criticism over the last two decades. This book re-examines concepts of spectatorship in the light of historical accounts of audience reception exploring how historical audiences have talked about Hollywood movies, and the ways in which this word-of-mouth response has affected the reception of individual movies and Hollywood in general. A range of international contributors examine issues as diverse as the history of historical reception studies, genre and cultural authority, audience and promotional discourses, and the degree to which the critical 'talk' generated by institutions of censorship or government limited the interpretative possibilities available to audiences.The book also explores issues of race and spectatorship, including the way in which James Baldwin related to the image of Bette Davies on screen through the constraints of his own race and sexuality. "Hollywood Spectatorship" also looks at the modern spectator as a domestic connoisseur, how in the last decade s/he has become as much an auditor as viewer and how the arrival of new technologies has brought about a new 'hyper-spectator' in effect challenging received notions of the spectator and reception. Discussing a range of films including "The Silence of the Lambs", "Fantasia", "All About Eve" and "On the Beach", "Hollywood Spectatorship" represents a challenging reassessment of the significance of spectatorship within film criticism and interpretation.
