Summary
"Sports films are popular forms of entertainment around the world, but beyond simply amusing audiences, they also reveal much about class, race, gender, sexuality, and national identity. In All-Stars and Movie Stars, Ron Briley, Michael K. Schoenecke, and Deborah A. Carmichael explore the interplay between sports films and critical aspects of our culture, examining the films as both historical artifacts and building blocks of ideologies, values, and stereotypes." "The book covers not only Hollywood hits such as Field of Dreams and Miracle but also documentaries, such as The Journey of the African American Athlete, and international cinema, such as the German film The Miracle of Bern. The book also explores television coverage of sports, commenting on the relationship of media to golf and offering a new perspective on the culture and politics behind the depictions of the world's most popular pastimes."--Jacket
