9780044451402 The decline of classical Hollywood cinema and the rise of the teenager are dealt with in this book, precipitating the "juvenilization" of film content, the operative reality of the US film industry today and the rise of the "teenpic" in the 1950s - an exploitation film targeted at teenagers to the exclusion of their elders. Both individual films and distinct film "types" within the genre are examined in terms of their impact on the movie industry and their role in validating the emerging teen subculture.
