Facing an economic crisis in the 1980s, the Hollywood industry moved boldly to control the ancillary markets of videotape, video disk, pay-cable and pay-per-view, and the major studios found themselves targeted for acquisition by global media and communications companies. This volume examines the decade's transformation that took Hollywood from the production of theatrical film to media software. Some of the films discussed in this volume include: "Platoon"; "Do the Right Thing"; "Blue Velvet"; "Diner"; "E.T."; "Batman"; and, "Body Heat".

"Prince resists standard views of the period as one dominated by the blockbuster mentality of Lucas and Spielberg and by the ideology of the Reagan administration. He argues that 1980s Hollywood was not monolithic but diverse. During the 1980s, the film industry reinvented itself to accommodate the new 'delivery systems' of cable and home video. Corporate conglomeration of the 1970s went in reverse as corporations restructured."--"Choice
