Heroes, Lovers, and Others: The Story of Latinos in Hollywood by Clara E. Rodriguez
Heroes, Lovers, and Others: The Story of Latinos in Hollywood

larap, November 7, 2007

Rodriguez delivers a sophisticated and clear analysis of the film and social history of Latinos in Hollywood film. An engaging read written for the broader public, this book presents stories, archived photographs, and compelling arguments about both the important role of Latinos in film and the relationship between film and social change. Representations and roles (e.g. heroes, lovers, and Others) shift with the political, social, and racial shifts within and between the U.S. and Latin America(ns). I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in film history, Latino history, sociology, or media studies.
