Overview

"... both fresh and informed, as well as a pleasure to read."
—Film Quarterly

Since 1982, when this book first appeared, the Hollywood musical has undergone a rebirth, with the rise of teen musicals such as Dirty Dancing and
Flashdance. In a chapter written especially for this second edition of her well-known study,
Jane Feuer shows how this new development in the genre relates to important changes in the cinema audience itself. It is the text for the study of Hollywood musicals.
