About this book

Introduction

This is an important contribution to scholarship on American independent cinema and on actors & acting, two fields of study which have seen tremendous growth in recent years but are rarely explored together. Expertly combining textual and contextual, performance and industrial analysis, this book will, I think, soon come to be regarded as a milestone.
