Sam B. Girgus (born c. 1942) is an American film and literature scholar, professor of English at Vanderbilt University. He is well known for his analysis of the works of Woody Allen in his books such as The Films of Woody Allen (2002) and A Companion to Woody Allen (2013) with Peter J. Bailey. He believes ultimately that Allen's films undermine the world in which we live. Girgus has also authored a book on Clint Eastwood and books such as The American self: myth, ideology, and popular culture (1981), Hollywood Renaissance: The Cinema of Democracy in the Era (1998), America on Film: Modernism, Documentary, and a Changing America (2002) and many others. Several of his works have addressed the relationship between film and literature and politics and democratic individualism.
