Top Hat is the first volume to spotlight this classic Hollywood film, probing the musical genre, notions of romance and subjectivity, as well as the contested relations between the sexes. * Offers a detailed analysis of one of Hollywood's greatest musicals, including a comprehensive survey of the film's production, promotion and reception, all measured against the background of 1930s socio-political contexts in the USA * Explores the musical genre and questions of (gendered) national identity, romance, subjectivity and the notion of the couple * Written in a clear, accessible style, Top Hat probes text and context carefully to appeal to the student and teacher of the musical and of Hollywood film history, as well as the film-loving general reader

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Its considerable claims to Art and its resonant magic are the dual focus of this insightful and highly readable study by Peter William Evans ... Evans approaches this most celebratory of musical comedies in celebratory mode but also with a deserved seriousness devoid of solemnity. " (Times Literary Supplement , 24 June 2011)
