Hi All,

Even though this is verboten non-experimental subject matter, I wanted to
see if anyone has reading suggestions for the following films. Books,
articles, reviews, on-line texts, etc. Also, reading suggestions for
³post-Hollywood² musicals in general. This for a non-credit class Iım
scheduled to be teaching.
