With twelve kids, life at the Gilbreth house has always been a big project. But after their father passes away, there are more challenges than ever. And yet, with the irrepressible blend of humor and good cheer characteristic of one of the most beloved families in America, the Gilbreths happily rise to every occasion and find a way to keep it all together.

American cinema has long been fascinated by jazz and jazz musicians. Yet most jazz films aren't really about jazz. Rather, as Krin Gabbard shows, they create images of racial and sexual identity, many of which have become inseparable from popular notions of the music itself. In Jammin' at the Margins, Gabbard scrutinizes these films, exploring the fundamental obsessions that American culture has brought to jazz in the cinema. Gabbard's close look at jazz film biographies, from The Jazz Singer to Bird, reveals Hollywood's reluctance to acknowledge black subjectivity. Black and even white jazz artists have become vehicles for familiar Hollywood conceptions of race, gender, and sexuality. Even Scorsese's New York, New York and Spike Lee's Mo' Better Blues have failed to disentangle themselves from entrenched stereotypes and conventions. Gabbard also examines Hollywood's confrontation with jazz as an elite art form, and the role of the jazz trumpet as a crucial signifier of masculinity. Finally, he considers the acting careers of Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and Hoagy Carmichael; Duke Ellington's extraordinary work in films from 1929 until the late 1960s; and the forgotten career of Kay Kyser, star of nine Hollywood films and leader of a popular swing band. This insightful look at the marriage of jazz and film is a major contribution to film, jazz, and cultural studies.

"When Green talks about the controversy in casting Hunter as Jesus in King of Kings and why he didn't join the cast of Star Trek after filming the initial pilot, he is in peak form as a writer and an astute critical commentator. This well written volume is a must for Hunter's fans"--Classic Images "The coverage is detailed and the writing style informal and entertaining"--ARBA. Jeffrey Hunter is best remembered today for his roles as half-breed Martin Pawley in John Ford's classic western The Searchers (1956), as Jesus Christ in Nicholas Ray's King of Kings (1961) and as Christopher Pike, the first captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, in the original Star Trek pilot. This work chronicles Hunter's entire film and television career from his beginnings as a 20th Century-Fox contract player to his untimely death in 1969 at the age of 42. Fellow 20th Century-Fox contract player Robert Wagner provides the Foreword and contributes his memories of working with Hunter. Production Manager Herbert F. Solow discusses Hunter's role in the original Star Trek pilot and Lloyd J. Schwartz shares his memories of being present at Hunter's audition for the role of Mike Brady in The Brady Bunch (1969). Hunter's "lost" film Strange Portrait (1966) is also discussed in detail and his radio and theatre career highlighted.
