Overview

From 1925 to World War II, the image of children in American films was one of unqualified innocence. After World War II, however, some significant variations occurred. First, the child star era sharply declined; second, new images of children that would have been unthinkable in the earlier years slowly began to appear. By the 1970s, monster children and precocious imps became standard movie fare. This study, utilizing socio-cultural criticism, approaches popular commercial films as artifacts that mirror their culture and finds that recurring narrative images of children in films reflect changing mass attitudes toward childhood and innocence in 20th-century America.

Editorial Reviews

Film Review Annual
...Fascinating study...A lucid, authoritative and never ponderous examination of an important aspect of the cinema as social history. Highly recommended.
Journal of Popular Film and Television
Jackson devotes most of her book to analyzing films, and she does this very well...Her observations on how films reflect societal changes are perceptive and clearly reasoned...Fascinating study.
Movie Collector's World
...A necessary trip through film history...
The Ranger
...Intelligently written and gives the reader a greater understanding of both childhood and the media...An essential addition to any comprehensive library of books on cinema studies.
