Disability in Full-Length Feature Films: Frequency and Quality of Films over an 11 Year Span.
Byrd, E. Keith; Elliot, Timothy R.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v11 n2 p143-48 1988
This study assessed the presentation of disabling conditions in feature films and the general quality of these films (as judged by professional film critics' reviews and movie-goer ratings). Psychiatric disorder was the disability most frequently depicted. Films varied in quality with critics markedly more negative in their reviews than movie going consumers. (Author/DB)
