Films of Vincente Minnelli by James Naremore

Book Description

The Films of Vincente Minnelli, first published in 1993, examines the career of MGM's leading director of musicals, melodramas and comedies in the 1940s and 1950s. Widely admired for his flamboyant sense of colour and camera movement, Minnelli played a crucial role in maintaining the studio's reputation as the 'home of the stars'. Describing the director's contributions to some of the most celebrated works of Hollywood's golden era, this volume also includes a close analysis of five important films that represent the full range of Minnelli's career: Cabin in the Sky, Meet Me in St Louis, Father of the Bride, The Bad and the Beautiful and Lust for Life. These lively readings provide commentary on problems of genre, directorial style, cultural politics, and the connection between aestheticism and mass culture during the first half of the twentieth century.

Books By Author James Naremore

Sweet Smell of Success by James Naremore Sweet Smell of Success, Paperback (April 2010)

James Naremore's insightful study of this darkly satiric and much-admired film about the culture of celebrity in 1950s New York, starring Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis, provides new production information, a lively discussion of the film's historical context, and a close analysis of the work of its various contributors.

More Than Night by James Naremore More Than Night, Paperback (January 2008)

Arouses memories of black-and-white movies from the 1940s and '50s - melodramas about private eyes, femmes fatales, criminal gangs, and lovers on the run. This book discusses these pictures, and also shows that the central term is more complex and paradoxical than we realize. It also includes a chapter on film noir in the twenty-first century.
