    Abstract

    YouTube is a rich source of fan material representing transnational film stars. The videos created by fans have multiple functions, including a celebration of their idols, an engagement with a transnational audience, and a space in which they can create and project a packaged self. The results are the development of a form that draws on the techniques and images of classical film, mixed with the duration and aesthetics of the modern music video. Using interviews with YouTubers, this article analyses the YouTube videos of María Félix and Dolores del Río as transnational star texts.
