Inner-City Exhibition and the Genre Film: Distributing "Night of the Living Dead" (1968), 59-77
Kevin Heffernan

Historiography and Sinification: Music in Chinese Cinema of the 1930s, 78-97
Yeh Yueh-yu
Abstract: Sinification, in the sense of rendering Chinese, or indigenizing a foreign medium, has been a dominant discourse in Chinese film historiography. This article analyzes film music in Chinese cinema of the 1930s and argues that sinification should not be taken as a natural or inevitable process but instead should be viewed as a conditional, negotiated practice, subject to intertwined industrial and political mediations.
Imagined Islands: "White Shadows in the South Seas" and Cultural Ambivalence, 98-121
Jeffrey Geiger
Abstract: This essay examines the ways that W. S. Van Dyke's island romance, "White Shadows in the South Seas" (1928), reveals the imprint of both desire and anxiety at the heart of American representations of the South Pacific. The film also highlights the transitional and contradictory nature of American cultural, racial, and sexual discourses of the 1920s.
