This original contribution to the study of film narrative examines six classic films which themselves focus on interpretive inquiries. By exploring the relationship between the interpretive processes depicted in the films and those in which they involve their viewers, it reveals the ways in which they expose theoretical problems basic to the practice of textual interpretation generally.
