Crawford, Scott A. G. M.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, v59 n6 p45-49 Aug 1988
This article presents athletic activity in films as not being representative of a real world but as stereotypes and symbols. Selected films are reviewed to provide a cultural shorthand for determining American attitudes toward sport and athletic activity. Basic thematic issues are identified for discussion and analysis.
