Summary
  • Viewing Hollywood glamour through debates about fashion, identity, and social status, she discusses such films as What Price Hollywood?, The Bride Wore Red, and The Bitter Tea of General yen; big-budget, style-driven vehicles as Fashions of 1934 and Vogues of 1938; musicals; costume dramas; and Technicolor extravaganzas."--Jacket
  • "Hollywood Movies in the thirties were intrigued by strong-willed women, from ambitious gold diggers, career-minded working girls, and social climbers to more illicit portrayals of female androgyny and ethnic exoticism. Revealing this public and cinematic fascination with women, Sarah Berry presents a lively look at the films, fan magazines, and advertising of the era
