WORLD FILM LOCATIONS: BOSTON. Ed. by Marcelline Block. Intellect Books, Bristol, 2014. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect Books, University of Chicago Press. 128 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781783201983 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Founded by the Puritans in 1630 and the site of many of the American Revolution's major precursors and events (including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and Paul Revere's midnight ride, among others), Boston has played--and continues to play--an influential role in the shaping of the historic, intellectual, cultural, and political landscapes of the United States. And Boston has a significantly rich tradition of cinematic representation. While Harvard is central to many of the films set in the Greater Boston area, World Film Locations: Boston considers the full spectrum of Boston's abundant aesthetic potential, reviewing films located within as well as far beyond Harvard's hallowed halls and ivy-covered gates. Many iconic American classics, blockbusters, romantic comedies, and legal thrillers, as well as films examining Boston's criminal underside, particularly in juxtaposition to the city's elitist high society, were filmed on location in the city's streets and back lots.
