Mexico on Main Street

Transnational Film Culture in Los Angeles before World War II

Rutgers University Press

Mexico on Main Street takes us inside a forgotten world: the film culture that thrived within Los Angeles’s Mexican immigrant community in the early decades of the twentieth-century. Drawing from rare archives, Colin Gunckel demonstrates how these immigrants not only consumed Hollywood and Mexican films, but also produced fan publications, fiction, criticism, music, and live theatrical events. This book demonstrates how a site-specific study of cultural and ethnic issues challenges our existing conceptions of U.S. film history, Mexican cinema, and the history of Los Angeles.
