celebrity, documentary, performance
My Mabuse posts are here. I'll put this link in my sidebar soon.
Unless I just keep doing this when I need desparate help with questions of celebrity, documentary and performance. Click on that link to find my lastest call for help.
Or save yourself the trouble: I was wondering, does anyone know of a nice solid documentary studies article on the early origins and/or trajectory of the celebrity bio-pic? I'm thinking of something that maybe ties together, say, the appearance of Annie Oakley or Sandow or Queen Victoria as their famous selves with the current strain of celebrity documentaries and then throws in, for good measure, the emphasis on performative identity in the direct cinema period . . . Or really an article that links ANY of the above, if not all.
Answer it here, there or via email and I will give credit where credit is due.
