This book focuses on the distinctiveness of the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age. These stars were cast for their specific dancing or singing skills, that could be recognized by audiences and sold by the studios' publicity machine. They acquired Hollywood stardom through a dialogue with highbrow culture and mass industry, that cinema tried to bring into harmony. This collection brings together the contributions of American, British, and French researchers.
