Each volume presents original essays analyzing the movie star against the
background of American cultural history. As icon, as mediated personality, and
as object of audience fascination and desire, the Hollywood star remains the
model for celebrity in modern culture and represents a paradoxical combination
of achievement, talent, ability, luck, authenticity, superficiality, and even
ordinariness. In all of the volumes, stardom is studied as an effect of, and
influence on, the particular historical and industrial contexts that enable a
star to be discovered, to be featured in films, to be promoted and publicized,
and ultimately to become a recognizable and admired-even notorious-feature of
the cultural landscape. Understanding when, how, and why a star makes it,
dazzling for a brief moment or enduring across decades, allows readers to
assess the importance of mediated celebrity in an increasingly visualized
world.
