Haworth, Catherine (2017) Listening to the detectives: towards inclusive analysis of The Falcon's adventures at RKO. In: Sources and Archives in Screen Sound Studies, 1st-2nd June 2017, University of Huddersfield, UK. (Unpublished)

Using case studies drawn from the 'Falcon' series of 1940s adventure programmers, this paper considers the role of archival sources in film musicology. Drawing on materials from the RKO Radio Pictures Studio Collection, held at the University of California, Los Angeles, I consider the relationship between process documentation and textual analysis in film music studies, and how this might affect our understanding of B film production in classical Hollywood.
Paper given as part of the Sources and Archives in Screen Sound Studies symposium, https://screensoundsources.wordpress.com.
