Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Tasker (film and cultural studies, U. of Sunderland) investigates contemporary cinema's complex relationship with gender and sexual identities in the wake of feminism, and explores four versions of the working woman common in Hollywood films--spunky heroines of action movies, female police and FBI agents, the singer as movie star, and sharp-shooting cowgirls of the new Westerns. She also discusses the increasing prominence of women as producers and directors. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
