Summary
  • "In this book, author Rosalie Schwartz uses the 1933 RKO-Radio Pictures production Flying Down to Rio as a point of departure from which to examine the interplay of technology and popular culture that shaped a distinctive twentieth-century sensibility. The musical comedy connected airplanes, movies, and tourism, ending spectacularly with chorus girls dancing on the wings of airplanes high above Rio de Janeiro, Brazil."
  • "Flying Down to Rio: Hollywood, Tourists, and Yankee Clippers shows the close connection between commerce, aviation, film, and empire. By the end of the twentieth century, reality caught up with and surpassed imagination. Aviation, movies, and mass tourism had become powerful global industries, contributing to an internationally connected, entertainment-oriented culture. What was once unthinkable had now become expected."--Jacket
