Rosen’s book, one of the first books written by a woman about women in film, is a first step in the right direction

Rosen’s book, one of the first books written by a woman about women in film, is a first step in the right direction. Rosen slogged through endless reels of film from the 1900s to the present, carefully documenting significant and insignificant films from all periods. Her index lists hundreds of titles, and there is also an impressive bibliography about women, including articles from popular magazines and newspapers relevant to film images or to the position of women in society at various times .

In the 1920s the image of the flapper and the vamp dominated the screens. In the 1930s the brashly "wisecracking" blond woman typified by Jean Harlow, emerged

The history of the film industry is in many ways a reflection of the thwarted emergence in society of feminism and full equal civil rights for women. Commercial films have traditionally relied upon the charm and sexual allure of actresses to assure economic success at the box office. In the 1920s the image of the flapper and the vamp dominated the screens. In the 1930s the brashly "wisecracking" blond woman typified by Jean Harlow, emerged. With the coming of war, cinema's women became factory workers. The "strong woman" became the image of that day.

A great view into the past of glorious old Hollywood

but the writer comes off as a little bit bitter...dismissive of any actress she deems as too sexy or too pretty...the best books to read about old Hollywood and women in Golden Age are the ones by Jeanine Basinger...they are entertaining and informative without any hint of disdain or going overboard on the women's lib aspect...i mean the era was obviously male-oriented so it should not come as any great surprise that good female parts were few and that the "bad" woman has to pay in the end, even if she was bad only by having a job-but that was not the fault of the performers...or even always the fault of the studio heads...the US was a very prim and hypocritical place, full of false morality when it came to movies...and women often paid the price on the screen...but there are more sympathetic books on the topic...
