"... a model of genre criticism and probably the best overall analysis of the film musical to date." Journal of Popular Films and Television"The American Film Musical is a truly admirable book which is well worth making a song and dance about. It will immediately assume biblical authority for all who are seriously interested in the dream-factory's most lavish fantasies, and it may even come to stand as a landmark in our understanding of Hollywood as a whole.... Altman's book is thorough, well informed and warmly good-humored. It has brought the study of musical films out of the dark ages." Times Literary Supplement"... an important addition to both literature and film collections.... a landmark study." Library Journal"Altman's important study of the American film musical combines genre theory with film criticism and history.... Recommended... " ChoiceThe American Film Musical is at once the most advanced statement on genre theory and the most complete treatment of the American musical. Altman's unique interweaving of theory, history, and criticism represents an original and challenging contribution to film studies. Illustrated with over 200 frame enlargements and production stills.

Rick Altman is professor of cinema and comparative literature at the University of Iowa. He is the author of The American Film Musicaland Film/Genre; the editor of Sound Theory Sound Practice; and the coeditor of The Sounds of Early Cinema.
