Abstract: The metamorphosis in the 1920s and '30s of the William Powell persona from ethnic villain to romantic lead is an index of
Hollywood's tendency to repress all but stereotyped representations of ethnicity, and to displace ethnic filmmakers' anxieties
about assimilation onto other issues, such as passion, violence, and crime.

"Monsieur Verdoux" and "Limelight". The combined distribution campaigns engineered for the films exemplify the interrelation

Abstract: That "Godzilla" (1954) protested United States H-bomb tests along the Bikini Atoll seems at once obvious and repressed. Godzilla
is, after all, a comic icon in the United States. Placing the genre in a historical context reveals its dual inscription into
Japanese and American culture and its ongoing political message, from H-bomb tests to "Star Wars."
