about

On December 8, 1967 Time magazine put Bonnie and Clyde on its cover and announced, "The New Cinema: Violence ? Sex ? Art." The following decade has long been celebrated as a golden age in American film history. In this innovative study, Peter Krämer offers a systematic discussion of the biggest hits of the period (including The Graduate [1967], The Exorcist [1973] and Jaws [1975]). He relates the distinctive features of these hits to changes in the film industry, in its audiences and in American society at large.

Peter Krämer is lecturer in film studies at the University of East Anglia. He is the coeditor of Screen Acting and The Silent Cinema Reader.
