Re: question about teaching with film

I've taught hist & film classes for several years and have experimented with a variety of texts. For my money, the best general intro to the field (and that goes for students too) is still Robert Toplin's _Reel History: In Defense of Hollywood_ (2002). It's very reader-friendly, inexpensive, and only around 200 pp. But if that's too long (i.e., if you're just infusing a unit on hist & film into a course), there's a great series of short articles (including one by Toplin) in vol. 29/2 (2004) of _Cineaste_.
