Summary
  • From the iconic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) to Tangled, the 2010 retelling of Rapunzel, Handsome Heroes and Vile Villains looks at the portrayal of male characters in Disney films from the perspective of masculinity studies and feminist film theory. This companion volume to Good Girls and Wicked Witches places these depictions within the context of Hollywood and American popular culture at the time of each film's release
  • [This volume] examines how masculinity is portrayed in human male characters. This book, which encompasses 28 Disney films (beginning with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), culminating with Wreck-It Ralph (2012), looks at the men and boys in the Disney studio's animated feature films from a historically-based, gender studies perspective. In other words, it examines the depictions of men and boys (both heroes and villains) from the perspective of masculinity studies as well as feminist film theory, and places these depictions within the larger context of Hollywood and U.S. popular culture in the eras in which the various films were released.--Publisher information
