RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 43894420 LA English T1 Headline Hollywood : a century of film scandal A1 McLean, Adrienne L., Cook, David A., PB Rutgers University Press PP New Brunswick, N.J. YR 2001 SN 0813528852 9780813528854 0813528860 9780813528861 AB Hollywood has long been associated with scandal--with covering it up, with managing its effects, and, in some cases, with creating and directing it. In putting together Headline Hollywood, Adrienne McLean and David Cook approach the relationship between Hollywood and scandal from a fresh perspective. The contributors consider some of the famous transgressions that shocked Hollywood and its audiences during the last century, and explore the changing meaning of scandal over time by zeroing in on issues of power: Who decides what crimes and misdemeanors should be circulated for public consumption and titillation? What makes a Hollywood scandal scandalous? What are the uses of scandal? The essays are arranged chronologically to show how Hollywood scandals have evolved relative to changing moral and social orders.--Back cover.
