The scope of this collection is indicative of the breadth and diversity of music’s role in cinema, as is its emphasis on musical contributions to ‘non-musical’ films. By bringing together chapters that are concerned both with the relationship between performance, music and film and the specificity of national, historical, social, and cultural contexts, Film’s Musical Momentswill be of equal importance to students of film studies, cultural studies and music. The book is organised into four sections: Music, Film, Culturefocuses on cinema representations of music forms; Stars, Performance and Receptionexplores stars, fan cultures and intertextuality; The Post-Classical Hollywood Musicalconsiders the importance of popular music to contemporary cinema; and Beyond Hollywoodlooks to specific national contexts. Chapters include jazz and animation, the Country and Western biopic, cult musicals and fandom, the importance of the soundtrack movie, and musicals from the former East Germany.
