Abstract:

In The Blue and the Gray on the Silver Screen, film scholar Roy Kinnard presents a retrospective of nearly one hundred films which deal directly or peripherally with the Civil War period.

Included are such comic films as Buster Keaton's classic The General and Red Skelton's A Southern Yankee. Each description includes a cast list, credits, and reviews. Complete with nearly 200 photographs illustrating the text, the book is in itself a record of the war as portrayed by Hollywood. With attention to detail and its careful analysis of how each movie reflected the period in which it was made, The Blue and the Gray on the Silver Screen provides a social commentary as well as a useful resource that will delight Civil War buffs and film fans alike.
