Classic horror movie fans are familiar with the classic movie posters and images from the 1930s Golden Age of Horror, but this fascinating book of graphics includes articles, images and rare photos that will be appreciated and enjoyed by any movie fan. A Word from the Publishers Midnight Marquee Press, Inc. has published over 120 books, most on classic movies and moviemakers. Over the years we have spent many hours doing research for many of those titles. We are fascinated by the way these films were seen at the time. So, since you can only do so many articles or chapters on Frankenstein, we can do something new—based on something old. We hope movie fans will be as intrigued as we were by the original newspaper clippings, ads, photos and just strange items found in the 1930s newspapers, magazines, and pressbooks. We wish some of the images were easier to read, but we did our best to clean them up as much as possible. This volume took much longer to do than we had anticipated. And we had too much material for just one volume. So we plan to do a 1930s Volume 2 before moving on to the 1940s.

Innerhalb der USA gilt New Orleans seit jeher als die "unamerikanischste" Stadt, als exotisch und anders, gar als "sozio-geographischer Unfall". Hier überkreuzen sich nicht nur die Einflüsse verschiedener Kolonialkulturen, sondern auch die Routen des atlantischen Sklavenhandels und der asiatischen Arbeitsmigration und nicht zuletzt die ideellen wie materiellen Transferbewegungen zwischen den beiden Amerikas. Der vorliegende Band macht es sich zur Aufgabe, diese vielfältigen transarealen Zirkulationsprozesse zu analysieren und das Potential New Orleans' zur paradigmatischen Metropole des Globalen Südens auszuloten. Im Fokus stehen verschiedene Formen der kulturellen Kreolisierung, wie sie sich in der Sprache, der Literatur, der Musik, aber auch in Alltagsphänomen wie dem Karneval oder Computerspielen manifestieren. Within the USA, New Orleans has long been considered the 'un-American' city, seen as exotic and different, even as a 'socio-geographical accident'. It is a crossroads not only for the influences of different colonial cultures but also for the routes of the Atlantic slave trade and immigration of Asian workers, and not least for material and non-material transfer between the two Americas. This volume seeks to analyse these manifold transareal circulation processes and to explore New Orleans's potential as a paradigmatic metropolis of the Global South. The focus is on different forms of creolisation as manifested in language, literature and music, but also in everyday phenomena such as Carnival or computer games.
