The golden age of Mexican cinema, which spanned the 1930s through to the 1950s, saw Mexico's film industry become one of
the most productive in the world, exercising a decisive influence on national culture and identity.
In the first major study of the global reception and impact of Mexican Golden Age cinema, this book captures the key aspects of its international success, from its role in forming a nostalgic cultural landscape for Mexican emigrants working in the United States, to its economic and cultural influence on Latin America, Spain and Yugoslavia. Challenging existing perceptions, the authors reveal how its film industry helped establish Mexico as a long standing centre of cultural influence for the Spanish-speaking world and beyond.
