Hi everyone,
A Screen-L member recently asked about references dealing with the growth
of large media conglomerates (sorry I didn't keep the original post).  Here
are a couple of references I would recommend:
        Aufderheide, P., Barnouw, E., Cohen, R. M., Frank, T., Gitlin, T.,
Lieberman, D., Miller, M. C., Roberts, G., Schatz, T.  (1997).
Conglomerates and the media.  New York: The New Press. (with a chapter on
the film industry)
        Bagdikian, B.  (1997).  The media monopoly  (5th ed.).  Boston:
Beacon Press (a new edition was just released)
        McChesney, R. W.  (1997).  Corporate media and the threat to
democracy.  New York: Seven Stories Press.
        Meehan, E.  (1991).  'Holy commodity fetish, Batman!':  The
political economy of a commercial intertext.  In R. E. Pearson & W.
Uricchio (Eds.), The many lives of the Batman: Critical approaches to a
superhero and his media (pp. 47-65).  New York: Routledge.
Hope these help!
