Stealing the Show - African American Performers and Audiences in 1930s Hollywood

African American Performers and Audiences in 1930s Hollywood

€ 81.35


`Stealing the Show is a study of African American actors in Hollywood during the 1930s, a decade that saw the consolidation of stardom as a potent cultural and industrial force. Petty focuses on five performers whose Hollywood film careers flourished during this period--Louise Beavers, Fredi Washington, Lincoln `Stepin Fetchit` Perry, Bill `Bojangles` Robinson, and Hattie McDaniel--to reveal the `problematic stardom` and the enduring, interdependent patterns of performance and spectatorship for performers and audiences of color. She maps how these actors--though regularly cast in stereotyped and marginalized roles--employed various strategies of cinematic and extracinematic performance to negotiate their complex positions in Hollywood and to ultimately `steal the show.` Drawing on a variety of source materials, Petty explores these stars` reception among Black audiences and theorizes African American viewership in the early twentieth century. Her book is an important and welcome contribution to literature on the movies`--Provided by publisher
