Terms of Endearment by Peter William Evans

Book Description

Taking into account romantic comedy's current popularity and the genre's adaptability to changing historical circumstances, as well as its powerful tendency to contain and assimilate social changes, this book explores the complex ways in which recent cultural discourses on gender and sexuality have found their way into the apparently inflexible structure of romantic comedy. Focusing on a wide range of well-known films (including Working Girl, Murphy's Romance, Peggy Sue Got Married, When Harry Met Sally, Green Card) the chapters cover topics relating to formal, historical and ideological questions, including issues of romance, love and female subjectivity.

This is the first single study of Douglas Sirk's 1956 film Written on the Wind, a melodrama about an alcoholic playboy who marries the woman his best friend secretly loves.

Top Hat by Peter William Evans Top Hat, Hardback (September 2010)

Peter Evans' immensely readable volume uses this classic film to explore questions not only of integration across the Hollywood musical in general, but the ambiguities of (gendered) national identity, romance, subjectivity and the notion of the couple.

A major reconsideration of one of British cinema's finest film directors, offering fresh insight into Carol Reed's distinctive work, and his place in the history of British cinema.
