Covering classics ranging from Mambo Girl (1957) to The Heart is Crazy (1997), this book fills a critical gap in film studies as it brings together musicals from sixteen nations to highlight running, mutual themes. As one of cinema's few genuinely international genres, the musical has never been studied as a global sensation. They are often studied as part of distinct national traditions that are interpreted as native. Yet this anthology disputes previous approaches to the art to reveal the influence of the Hollywood model in musicals from around the world. Including case studies from Great Britain to France to Turkey, The International Film Musical is a key resource for this art form. The book ends with a coda by Rick Altman, one of the genre's most prominent scholars.
