This volume examines the relationship between tourism and film and television, from the early era of silent film to the era of cinema as mass entertainment, considering film-related tourism in the US, UK, Europe, and Australia. It explores early phases in moving images, such as panoramas and phantom rides; the role of film and travel during wartime, the rise of national cinemas, and the focus on domestic tourism as a way to recover from war and deprivation, with discussion of spy movies and anti-war films; the role of landscape in the western and road movie genres; crime genres, such as the Australian bushranger, detective stories, and American gangster films; how places like movie ranches and studios have been created to film movies and cater to tourists; film tourism precincts, museums, and events; and the role of small screens like television, computers, and mobile technology.
