University of Texas at Dallas: Film Professor Chronicles Legacy of Classic Hollywood Musicals

University of Texas at Dallas: Film Professor Chronicles Legacy of Classic Hollywood Musicals. “In December, the final conference [The Hollywood Film Musical in Its Mediatic and Cultural Context] accompanied the release of Star Turns in Hollywood Musicals, a collection of scholarly essays about the genre. The book, printed separately in French and English, is connected to a database that contains clips from the films referenced in the essays. At least one other book is planned for release in 2019. In addition, the project is developing a database that will allow scholars and fans to search the entire classic musical corpus of some 1,288 films for various information, including the styles of musical numbers in different historical periods and the careers of the performers in such films. ”
