Blog post and slideshow on the Oxford University Press site to accompany publication of 'Detective Agency? Scoring the amateur female investigator in 1940s Hollywood' in the journal 'Music and Letters'. The post introduces the 'working-girl' investigator, outlines the ways in which music contributes to the construction of gendered identity in Hollywood film, and explores the soundtrack of three 1940s B films: 'Stranger on the Third Floor' (1940), 'Deadline at Dawn' (1946), and 'The Big Steal' (1949).
