This is an examination of the concepts of spectatorship in the light of historical accounts of audience reception.

The book looks at how audiences have historically talked about Hollywood movies, and the ways in which "word-of-mouth" responses have affected the reception of individual movies and Hollywood.There are a range of contributors who examine many different issues from audience and promotional discourses to the issues of race and spectatorship.

The book also discusses the role of the modern spectator and how the arrival of new technologies are challenging notions of the spectator and reception.
