Barbas sheds new light on the development of the cult of celebrity in America, and demonstrates that while fans were avid consumers of the film industry, they did not mindlessly accept the images presented to them by the studios. Rather, by writing letters, making visits to Hollywood, and organizing fan clubs, they sought to actively influence the ways in which studios created movie stars and packaged them to the public. Far from being passive viewers, fan reacted to movies and stars with excitement, anger, confusion, joy, and even boredom – they were often complex, and never predictable.
