Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stardust Monuments sheds light on the enduring efforts to memorialize and canonize the history and meaning of Hollywood and American film culture. In this engaging history, Alison Trope explores the tensions between art and commerce as they intersect in a range of nonprofit and for-profit institutions and products. Her insightful narrative moves from the establishment of film libraries and museums, to the repeatedly failed attempts to open a Hollywood museum, to more successful corporate efforts to use Hollywood's past in theme restaurants and parks, to classic movie channels, DVD boxed sets, and the plethora of websites devoted to film fandom and Hollywood culture.
