USA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. USA; SEX IN FILMS Summary: "The turn of the century ushered in a new age, and movie screens nationwide reflected a new vision of female sexual morality. Bad Women takes us back to this period of social, cultural, and economic change to illustrate how American cinema presented images of this new woman to fit an emerging consumer culture of the early 1900s. Although originally designed to reinforce the mores of contemporary society, these new images of "bad women" moved discussions off women and their sexuality to the forefront of the national agenda. Charting the resulting cultural tensions through the monitoring of movies, Janet Staiger shows how representations and their endless permutations stirred conflict and debate over women's public and private behaviours. Rich in historical detail and theoretical insight, Bad Women offers an original view of a culture in transition, a sexual sensibility in the making, and American cinema's role in the change" -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 208-217) and index; Filmography: p. 207-208 ISBN: 0816626251 Contents: 1.
