Description - Romantic Comedy by Tamar Jeffers McDonald

"Romantic Comedy" offers an accessible introduction to the analysis of one of the most popular, but generally overlooked film genres. The book provides an overview of Hollywood's romantic comedy conventions, examining the iconography, narrative patterns and ideology which inform such films. Separate chapters discuss important sub-groupings within the genre: the screwball, sex comedy and the Radical romantic comedy of the 1970s. A final chapter traces the lasting influence of these earlier forms within current romantic comedies. Films discussed include "Pillow Talk" (1959), "Annie Hall" (1977) and "You've Got Mail" (1998).
