Overview

An annotated filmography of more than 3,000 entries each focusing on the film's Hispanic content, connection, or characters. Four separate indexes, more than 6,000 cross references, and as many film reviews make this work an invaluable reference tool for students, scholars, and individuals interested in studying silver screen stereotyping. This work completes Richard's three-volume documentation of how the domestic and international film industry contributed to stereotyping America's Hispanic community by detailing the contemporary return of the despicable Hispanic character.

Employing the broadest conceptual framework to include any individual of Spanish ancestry, this volume outlines how the film industry has homogenized the Latin, the Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and anyone from Mexico, Central/South America or the Caribbean nations into a despicable Spic (an ethnic enemy) whose negative traits/character have been conditioned by his national origins. The return of the negative image is due to a variety of reasons, and one thing is for certain--it has been profitable for filmmakers. There is no other such reference work presently in print that represents the definitive collection of films with Hispanic themes and connections in any language.
