women of the golden age
Wednesday 6 February - Wednesday 26 March
Tutor: Dr Emmie McFadden, Sheffield Hallam University
Throughout the golden age of Hollywood cinema women regularly exercised their influence as screenwriters, costume designers, editors, producers and actors, but rarely as directors. Only two women filmmakers were active during Hollywood's golden age; nevertheless, this season's screenings will celebrate and pay tribute to the many great women who helped define Hollywood's classical era. From the roaring 20s, to the crashing 30s, through to the post-war 40s, Hollywood's golden age established a variety of female screen archetypes in film noir, melodrama, screwball comedy and more. This course will draw attention to the diverse range of women working in Hollywood during this period, including Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Becall, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Hedy Lamarr, Lana Turner, Joan Fontaine, Ida Lupino, Mae West, Barbara Stanwyck, Audrey Hepburn and many, many more.
