A Bibliography of Film Audience Research Since 1960.
Austin, Bruce A.
The result of an exhaustive review of literature on the subject of film audiences, this bibliography is intended to provide film scholars with a reference tool, to act as an impetus for renewed research interest in the often neglected areas of film audience uses and gratifications, and to provide an update to UNESCO's 1961 bibliography concerning the influence of film on children and adolescents. The 91 entries, drawn from both English language and foreign journals, provide information on a variety of topics, including the following: United States films and foreign audiences, the non-filmgoer, patterns in mass media use, film preferences under conditions of threat, mass media in an underdeveloped village, Soviet film audiences, Hollywood films on the British screen, needs of motion picture audiences, the repeat audience for movies on television, female responsiveness to erotic films, the beginnings of gay cinema in Los Angeles, and intrusive and repetitive thought after a depressing film. Lists of sources searched and of additional bibliographies are appended. (FL)
