Have these models changed over time? Can they be linked to specific actors and filmmakers? In her seminal article, Laura Mulvey added a political dimension to the analysis of gender models and stereotypes by taking into account specific film strategies to highlight the underlying relations of power between men and women. While Entertainment Weekly reviewer Charles Winecoff faulted the book for containing "noninsights" into the personalities behind the press agents, a New York Times Book Review evaluation by Gene Santoro took a different view.
A Woman's View How Hollywood Spoke to Women 1930 1960 by Basinger Jeanine
Santoro concluded that Basinger's "hard-won knowledge, charming persistence and critical acuity let her see things anew and, in the process, [reinflate] most of her icons into more interesting characters than many of their heirs, the celebs who float airily through our postmodern world. Basinger continues her examination of Hollywood in her title, The Star Machine, In this work she focuses on the studio system from the s to the s and the manner in which studio bosses discovered talent and then groomed that person into star quality, separating him or her from a legion of other character actors.
Public taste was of utmost importance in the packaging of these stars, Basinger shows. Thus, for example, June Allyson assumed the wholesome girl-next-door image while Errol Flynn was sold as a swashbuckler type. The old studios micro-managed every aspect of a star's career, from acting lessons to telling them how to walk and talk; from hair-dos to the trimming of eyebrows.
Basinger also tackles the question of how today's stars differ from those of Hollywood's golden years, further contending that the old star machine became defunct after World War II. Writing in the New York Times Book Review, Manohla Dargis thought Basinger "can be a sharp, funny writer, and she's particularly on point when it comes to the ridiculous clothes that sometimes swaddled stars of the golden age.
