"Whose text is it anyway?: queer cultures, queer auteurs, and queer authorship. (homosexual expression in the films of George Cukor and Dorothy Arzner) Quarterly Review of Film and Video Nov 1993 v15 n1 p41(14)
"The collective films of directors George Cukor and Dorothy Arzner discretely express homosexuality and lesbianism in works that were designed for the straight, mass market. However, the homosexual following of their films is linked more to the performers who stared inthem, particularly Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn. Lesbian identity toward the stars and the characters they played is thought to be the main source for the popularity of such films despite the fact that Cukor was a homosexual and Arzner a lesbian. The influence of the directors may have played a larger part than previously thought." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The writer discusses women and psychoanalysis in the cinema, focusing on two melodramas of the 1940s--Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca and George Cukor's Gaslight. His analysis centers on the concept of the primal scene, which he describes as the father's assault on or violent possession of the mother, and which he suggests is at the heart of both psychoanalysis and narrative cinema. Both of these films, he suggests, turn on what might be called primal scenes in an extended sense: They depict an intrusion into a space that has been the scene of an act of desire or murder in the past. He describes the films as examples of the female Gothic, a tradition concerned with the disempowerment of women within patriarchal dynastic structures." [Art Index]

"Judy Garland's American Drag." Amerikastudien/American Studies. 46(1):123-33. 2001
"Judy Garland is as "obviously" American as much as she is "obviously" a gay icon. While, on the one hand, the queer use of Garland depends on her hegemonic function for the national imaginary, it also queers its operation for and in what Lauren Berlant has called the "National Symbolic." This article focuses on the 1954 George Cukor film A Star Is Born, crucial for Garland's gay fans, and considers the ways it reveals Americanness as a structure of impersonation. Garland's ordinariness resides within coordinates that determine American mass publicity as a whole - questions of "race," the specificity of American identity, and the historic claim of "Hollywood" to a central place in the production of an American national imaginary."
