The most important innovators in Sirk criticism in this period were Jon Halliday, whose lengthy interview in book form, Sirk on Sirk, has become a standard work, and Andrew Sarris, whose program notes on the director's films were compiled into the booklet Douglas Sirk—The Complete American Period. Magnificent Obsession is arguably director Douglas Sirk's masterpiece, even though there are many who find it campy or ridiculous. Indeed, the plot of Obsession is ridiculous (just as it was in its original version), something of which Sirk himself was aware/5(13).

Melodrama and Meaning is a major addition to the new historical approach to film studies.
