Facing an economic crisis in the 1980s, the Hollywood industry moved boldly to control the ancillary markets of videotape, video disk, pay-cable and pay-per-view, and the major studios found themselves targeted for acquisition by global media and communications companies. This volume examines the decade's transformation that took Hollywood from the production of theatrical film to media software.

Some of the films discussed in this volume include:

Platoon

Do the Right Thing

Blue Velvet

Diner

E.T.

Batman

Body Heat
