Abstract: This essay uses "Scar of Shame", a silent film with an all-black cast, to consider the way in which melodrama addresses the
disenfranchised. In addition, the film is situated in the race and class context of urban America in 1927 in an attempt to
theorize the black spectator in history.
Abstract: This essay presents a psychoanalytic and psychobiographical account of Laurence Olivier's "Hamlet". The author appeals to
the director's memoirs and contemporary theoretical contributions to the theory of narcissism, while both reviewing passive
Oedipal and narcissistic issues in Olivier's early years and providing a new close reading for the film.

Abstract: This essay argues that "The Paradine Case" represents a thoroughly unpleasureable text in its concern for viewer expectations.
Male impotence and female ambiguity merge with a lack of closure and "false" happy resolution to deny viewer pleasure, and
so place the film in its position of canonical marginality.
