    Beschreibung "This is a look back at a book that we wrote in the early 1980s and that was published in 1985. [...] What we propose is not another study of an outstanding individual, a trend, or a genre. The Classical Hollywood Cinema analyzes the broad and basic conditions of American cinema as a historical institution. This project explores the common idea that Hollywood filmmaking constitutes both an art and an industry. We examine the artistic uniqueness and the mass-production aspects of the American studio cinema. Moreover, we show how these two features fundamentally depend on one another. On the one hand, this cinema displays a unique use of the film medium, a specific style. This makes Hollywood cinema amenable to being considered a group style, comparable to Viennese classical music of the eighteenth century or Parisian cubist painting of the early twentieth. On the other hand, we can see the specific business practices of the Hollywood industry as initiating and sustaining its distinct film style. The history of Hollywood is thus the coalescence and continuation of a film style whose supremacy was created and maintained by a particular economic mode of film production."
