London, Herbert. “Five Myths of the Television Age.” Television Quarterly 10.1 (1982): 81-89
Herbert London, the Dean of Journalism at New York University and author of several books and articles,
explains how television contradicts five commonly believed ideas. He uses specific examples of events see
on television, such as the assassination of John Kennedy, to illustrate his points. His examples have been
selected to contradict such truisms as: “seeing is believing”; “a picture is worth a thousand words”; and
“satisfaction is its own reward.” London uses logical arguments to support his ideas, which are his persona

Crowell, 1968. This book is part of a series called “Twentieth Century
American Writers”: a Brief Introduction to the Man and his Work. After
fifty pages of straight biography, Gurko discussed Hemingway’s writing,

Doll, Susan and Greg Faller. “Blade Runner and Genre: Film Noir and Science Fiction.” Literature
Film Quarterly 14.2 (1986): 89-100. Doll and Faller assert that Ridley Scott’s film, Blade Runner,
exhibits elements of two distinct pulp genres, film noir and science fiction. The genre
cross-pollination is a reflection of Philip K. Dick’s novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,
upon which the movie is based. After a useful discussion of genre, the authors go on to effectively
discuss defining characteristics of both noir and sci-fi, despite the difficulties of such a project.
Through the course of accessible discussion and useful examples from the film, the complexities
involved in the combination of genres are revealed. In addition, the article also examines the ways
that noir and sci-fi in fact complement each other, noir providing a distinct style and sci- fi a distinct
narrative direction. Both genres are also concerned with many of
social constructs, ethics, and the state of being human.
