Popular Italian Cinema

Popular Italian Cinema by Louis Bayman

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.
