Beschreibung

Lasting Stars examines the issue of stardom and longevity and investigates the many reasons for the persistence or disappearance of different star personas. Through a selection of chapters that look at issues such as inappropriate ageing, national identity and physical characteristics, this book will be the first volume to consider in depth and breadth the factors that affect the longevity of film stardom.

The range of stars includes popular stars who are approached from fresh angles (Brando, Loren), less popular stars whose lower-profiles than their peers may be surprising (Taylor, Shearer) and stars whose national identity is integral to their perception as they age (Riva, Bachchan, Pavor). There are stars from the beginning of Hollywood (Valentino, Reid) to the present day (Jolie), and those who made uneasy transitions between countries (Mason), ages (Ringwald) and industrial eras (Keaton). The book examines the range of factors that affect how star images endure, including appropriate and inappropriate ageing (Griffith), race (Ice Cube) and digital technologies (Lee). 



Lucy Bolton is senior lecturer in film studies at Queen Mary University of London and the author of Film and Female Consciousness: Irigaray, Cinema and Thinking Women (Palgrave 2011). Her research includes film stardom, particularly in classical Hollywood cinema, and film philosophy.

Julie Lobalzo Wright is a Teaching Fellow in Film Studies at the University of Surrey,UK. Her main research concerns music stars in British and American cinema and has published on David Bowie's film stardom, in addition to more widely on music and film and stardom. Her monograph, Crossover Stardom: Popular Male Music Stars in American Cinema is forthcoming (2017).
