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.
