The Thirties; 5. The Forties; 6. The Fifties; 7. The Sixties; 8. The Seventies; index. First Edition, 1977. "This volume is a provocative and highly entertaining account of how Hollywood's myth-making factory has created the image of the indomitable male and, in the process, shaped and distorted our understanding of male sexuality. The silent, strong heroes from Cooper to Wayne to Eastwood, men idealized as single-handedly confronting the bad guys and civilizing the West, are shown actually to epitomize a violence and brutality that pervade American culture. Force rather than thought is lauded as ruthless paternal authoritarianism is linked with virility and manliness. The seeming veneration of women by great lovers like Valentino, Gable, and Redford is revealed as window dressing to justify male domination and the perception of women as fickle, shallow, flighty creatures who lack real identity and intellegence. Even the male comaraderie celebrated by the Western cowboy and his sidekick or buddy films of the sixties and seventies is shown to reflect a profound fear of impotency and hatred of women." from the jacket flap. Price clipped. Only the slightest wear to dj, else, Pristine. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia.
