About The Book
Dreams and Dead Ends provides a compelling history of the twentieth-century American gangster film. Beginning with Little Caesar (1930) and ending with Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead (1995), Jack Shadoian adroitly analyzes twenty notable examples of the crime film genre. Moving chronologically through nearly seven decades, this volume offers illuminating readings of a select group of the classic films — including The Public Enemy, D.O.A., Bonnie and Clyde, and The Godfather — that best define and represent each period in the development of the American crime film. Richly illustrated with more than seventy film stills, Dreams and Dead Ends details the evolution of the genre through insightful and precise considerations of cinematography, characterization, and narrative style. This updated edition includes new readings of three additional movies — Once Upon a Time in America, Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead, and Criss Cross — and brings this clear and lively discussion of the history of the gangster film to the end of the twentieth century.
