Film Genre by Barry Keith Grant
Book Description"Film Genre: From Iconography to Ideology" offers a concise evaluation of film genre, discussing genre theory and sample analyses of genre films, from the western, science fiction and the musical through to horror, comedy and the thriller. This volume introduces the topic in an accessible way to entry-level undergraduates, and includes sections on the first principles of studying and understanding 'the idea of genre', genre and popular culture, the narrative and stylistic conventions of specific genres, and the relations of genres to culture and history, race, gender, sexuality, class and national identity, and the complex relations between genre and authorship. Among the case studies explored throughout the book are "42nd Street", "Pennies from Heaven", "Red River", "All That Heaven Allows", "Night of the Living Dead", "Die Hard", "Little Big Man", "Blue Steel", and "Posse".
