In The Space Of A Song

Songs take up space and time in films. Richard Dyer's In the Space of a Song takes off from this perception, arguing that the way songs take up space indicates a great deal about the songs themselves, the nature of the feelings they present, and who is allowed to present feelings how, when and where. In the Space of a Song explores this perception through a range of examples, from classic MGM musicals to blaxploitation cinema, with the career of Lena Horne providing a turning point in the cultural dynamics of the feeling.Chapters include:The perfection of Meet Me in St. LouisA Star Is Born and the construction of authenticity'I seem to find the happiness I seek': Heterosexuality and dance in the musicalThe space of happiness in the musicalSinging prettily: Lena Horne in HollywoodIs Car Wash a musical?Music and presence in blaxploitation cinemaIn the Space of a Song is ideal for both scholars and students of film studies.
