Product Description:

From the origins of the silent feature film and the creation of the star system Italy has been at the forefront of the development of cinema as a mass phenomenon. Popular Italian genre films were among the most internationally successful Italian films ever inundating the cinemas of Latin America and the Middle East as well as serving as B-movies in theatres across the United Kingdom and America. Cinema played a central role in Italian life promoting Italian fashion and music and forming a key concern politically. Yet Italian cinema like that of other European countries is best known academically as a source of films for the international arthouse circuit. This book seeks to reassess this imbalance by bringing together some of the most innovative and distinguished scholarship in the field for a comprehensive examination of how 'the popular' works in Italian cinema from opera to the missionary film to sex comedies.
