The Working Class in American Film: The Creation of Image and Culture by Hollywood in the 1960s and 1970s

by Robert Marcink

Reviews

"Provides a well-documented survey of motion pictures that reflected and defined the working class. As the author states, this simplistic version of the responsible middle class responding to the attacks of counterculture ideals had the effect of bringing both groups into the movie theaters. What is good about Marcink's commentary is that he is merciless in pointing out weaknesses on both sides of the political spectrum as well as noting the strengths of these films. He comments on 44 films. Recommended. All readers." - CHOICE
