It is my hope that this study will suggest new ways of thinking not only about the movement, but about history and historical representation in ﬁlm and ﬁlm music.

Given that melodrama was construed as, among other things, both an American phenomenon and an emblem of repressed Nazi populism, it cannot excavate any pure, prelapsarian national identity or history. That is precisely the point. For melodrama ultimately dramatizes the irretrievability of the “stranded objects” of Germany’s postwar psychic, social, and political landscapes—while simultaneously stressing their ongoing importance.
