MEDIA REVIEWS
In this highly readable and engaging study, Studlar selects four roughly contemporaneous movie idols---Douglas Fairbanks, John Barrymore, Rudolph Valentino, and Lon Chaney---and examines the ways in which they produced masculinity within respective cultural contexts of boy culture, the 'matinee girls' of the late Victorian theater, dance, and freak shows.
