Wisconsin Film Studies
Wisconsin Film Studies offers works by emerging and eminent scholars focusing on deserving areas of film study. The series presents books whose fresh scholarship or perspective will make an enduring contribution to film literature. The range is broad, and manuscripts on all periods and national film cultures are invited.
The editor invites manuscripts and proposals that focus on important aspects of American and international film, including biographies and autobiographies of key artists (especially directors, screenwriters, and actors); major films; national identity; neglected history; and political investigation.
The series will consider a variety of formats: broad overviews; specific topics; thematic volumes of essays (original or collected on related subjects); anthologies primarily for classroom use; and suggestions for reprinting classic or first-time paperback editions of major works in the field.

Rouben Mamoulian, Hollywood, and Broadway
“Jensen’s fresh, sparkling prose allows Mamoulian to emerge as the type of suave, charming, larger-than-life character so often portrayed in his films. Jensen’s thoughtful use of Mamoulian’s own words in journals and interviews allows this work to serve as the intimate, lively memoir the great director never completed.”

Comprehensive in scope, Calder’s book gathers together basic production information, chiefly on scripting and casting, on a large number of films derived from the works of one of the most popular and prolific writers of the twentieth century.”
