Colin Gunckel contributed the essay  "A Cinema between Mexico and Hollywood: What We Can Learn from Adaptations, Remakes, Dubs, Talent Swaps and Other Curiosities" to the anthology he co-edited entitled, Cinema between Latin America and Los Angeles: Origins to 1960 (Rutgers University Press, 2019).  Gunckel's article examines overlooked cinematic exchanges between Hollywood and the Mexican film industry from the 1930s to the 1950s. The anthology as a whole examines the considerable, ongoing role that Los Angeles played in the history of Spanish-language cinema and explores the implications of this transnational dynamic for the study and analysis of LatinAmerican cinema before 1960. The volume editors aim to flesh out the gaps between Hollywood and Latin America, American imperialism and Latin American nationalism in order to produce a more nuanced view of transnational cultural relations in the western hemisphere
