Ty Burr - Gods Like Us: On Movie Stardom and Modern Fame
Ty Burr presents Gods Like Us: On Movie Stardom and Modern Fame ($28.95). How—and why—do we obsess over movie stars? How does fame both reflect and mask the person behind it? How have the image of stardom and our stars’ images altered over a century of cultural and technological change? A well-known film critic answers these questions in this lively and fascinating history of stardom.
Ty Burr will be in conversation with the noted local film writer Thomas Gladysz.
Ty Burr has been a film critic at The Boston Globe since 2002. Prior to that he wrote about movies for Entertainment Weekly, and he began his career as an in-house movie analyst for HBO. His previous books include The Best Old Movies for Families: A Guide to Watching Together.
