The Case Of Happiness

Todd Solondz's Happiness (1998) is a portrait of a suburban family, the Jordans. The story focuses on the parents, Mona and Lenny Jordan their adult daughters, Joy, Helen, and Trish Bill Maplewood, a psychiatrist, and Although I have addressed the issue of voice elsewhere in my work, it requires elucidation in this chapter as well. Todd Solondz exhibits a very distinctive voice in Happiness.4 He is ironic and humorous about the Jordan sisters. The most-likely-to-fail sister, Joy, is the character who dominates screen time. The other sisters, Trish and Helen, have what might appear to be privileged lives. Trish has a husband and a family, and Helen has beauty and job success. But their surface successes belie a husband who is a pedophile and, in Helen's case, a dangerous promiscuity that implies failure rather than success. Both Trish and Helen are treated ironically only Joy is allowed to become real for the audience. She has ironic moments, the relationship break-up with Andy, for...

Historical Imaginary or Rebranding the Nation

Tise very specific tastes and attitudes. Declaring this national agenda as universal - democracy, freedom, open exchange of people, goods and services -has served America well, insofar as these values and goals ( the inalienable right to the pursuit of happiness ) have, until the end of the last century, been widely endorsed and aspired to by peoples who neither share territorial proximity with the United States nor language, faith, customs, or a common history. European values of solidarity, pacifism, the welfare state or the preservation of the past have been less inspirational, and have certainly not translated into the same kind of recognition for its cinema as is the case for Hollywood, even if (as the previous chapter tried to indicate) value systems, and even different mythologies can be read off the films made by the national cinemas of Europe since 1945.

Margarethe von Trotta

In her stories, social or political conflicts are personalized, and the narrative is charged with resolving them, at least metaphorically, by providing the necessary elements of closure. Binary oppositions, symmetrical situations, repetitions and visual parallels are structural features much in evidence. In Christa Klages, the daycare center cannot survive because the landlord wants to open a sex shop Lena, the bank teller, is both a double of Christa's school friend Ingrid and, in another context, symmetrically related to Christa's own young daughter. In Sisters or the Balance of Happiness, the heroine Maria has a double in the severe matron presiding over the typing pool, and Maria and Anna are echoed in the blind old woman, always shouting at her sister. Miriam is interested in Maurice who gets Maria, and Robert is interested in Maria but gets Miriam. In The German Sisters, Marianne the terrorist has presumably thrown bombs that have wounded innocent people her innocent small son...

Image Not Available

Fear grows out of his isolation, and the loneliness in Taxi Driver is suffocating, explicit in his first-person narration, but equally created by Scorsese's framing of his exclusion from society and desperate desire for friendship, as he gazes at couples walking holding hands. In the end, Travis sees no hope of finding peace and happiness, so seeks redemption by becoming Iris's unsolicited avenging angel, embarking on a suicidal mission to slaughter her exploiters. Scorsese was pushed into having Travis acclaimed as a hero in the ending, and photographically toning down the violence of the ending. The final carnage was originally scripted as surreally bloody, to the extent that it was unclear whether it was 'real' or Travis's fantasy. What Scorsese retains in the end is a darkly poetic depiction of isolation leading to madness.

The Case of Steinbecks East of Eden

Charles has achieved material success, but in terms of personal happiness he remains unfulfilled. Adam takes his wife with him to California, but she deserts him and their twin infant sons. He raises them on a farm and becomes more interested in religious than material values. His sons, Cal and Aron, are opposites. Cal is pragmatic, and Aron, the father's favorite, is idealistic, trying to echo his father's values. Cal discovers that his mother is not dead but lives in Salinas, just over the mountain ridge. She is the leading madam in the town. In an attempt to hurt his brother, Cal introduces their mother to his saintly brother. The story ends with the disillusioned Aron being killed in Europe during World War I and Cal taking care of his father, now felled by a 77 stroke. The goal of this three-generation family narrative was to capture the post-Civil War eagerness for material recovery as well as the deep conflict between material and spiritual...

From Safe by Taylor

Taylor Mac's performance art work is primarily a response to and an exploration of homogony in western culture. Combining music, spoken word, and elaborate gender-bending costume designs, he creates full-length solo and collaborative productions thatjuxtapose stream-of-conscious images from such topics as the masculine War on Terror, white appropriation of black culture, and patriarchy in romance. By showing the duality of human beings, Taylor provides a balance to our adoration of sameness. Safe is about fear and the conflicting mental acrobatics individuals go through when overcome by the 'War on Terror. Simple daily stresses and issues of love are placed alongside thoughts of war because, the author believes, physical conflict stems from our fears of a life without love and happiness. The piece is a plea for joy.

A characteristic of Bunuels work power of repetition in the image

Lucius Egroizard, artist and scholar of genius, who has gone mad after the murder of his daughter, repeats indefinitely the circumstances of the murder until he invents a machine to record the voice of a singer, deforms it, and restores so accurately the voice of his dead child that he regains everything daughter, happiness. It moves from an indefinite repetition to repetition as decisive instant, from a closed repetition to an open repetition, from a repetition which not only fails, but induces failure, to a repetition which not only succeeds, but recreates the model or the originary.8 We could mistake it for one of Bunuel's scripts. In fact the bad repetition does not occur simply because the event fails. It is that which makes the event fail, as in The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, where the repetition of lunch pursues its work of degradation through all the milieux which it closes on to themselves (Church, army, diplomacy. . .). And, in The Exterminating Angel, the law of bad...

Heather Tyrrell and Rajinder Dudrah

The style of song picturisations has been significantly influenced by the arrival of MTV in India in 1993. Songs traditionally last for seven minutes within a film, but are now being re-edited for television to three minutes. Directors from advertising and television are increasingly moving into film, and bringing with them a 'music video' sensibility, so that song sequences are increasingly shot and edited in an 'MTV' style. Song-and-dance numbers are therefore becoming more like stand-alone set-pieces within the larger scheme of the film. The choreographer Farah Khan, for example, exercises control over the costumes, the design and cinematography of the song as well as the dance steps. She has choreographed many of the biggest films of the late 1990's, including Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (The Big-Hearted Will Win The Bride, 1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (Something Is Happening, 1998) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham . . . (Sometimes Happiness, Sometimes Sorrow, 2001), and one indicator of...

Signoret Glamour Deconstructed

Signoret is a classical film star in a way that Montand is not, since her film career was at its height in the period 1945-1960, when Montand was still known primarily as a singer. Susan Hayward has called this period 'the beauty years' as far as Signoret's star body is concerned.44 We can also apply to this period Morin's phrase 'la mythologie du bonheur' (the mythology of happiness). A key moment in this mythologising of happiness and of the beautiful star body is the account of how Signoret and Montand met and fell in love. As told by Montand, the anecdote centres on Signoret, and introduces the symbolism of doves, a figure of innocence which recurs in photos of Signoret from this period As Montand himself acknowledged, this idyllic moment was, in fact, a myth, a romantic picture that he and Signoret fed to the press. But this of litde importance. As regards Signoret's star image, this moment's power is associated not with any claim to veracity, but with the symbolising of...

The Influence of Graham Greene

Throughout the work, Greene contrasts Neale's current situation with that of the serene and beautiful past of his childhood memories. To Neale, that golden time (England before the onslaught of World War I), represents a period in which life had both order and meaning. Right and wrong were clearly differentiated, and happiness and love were still possible. In the new world, life has lost all meaning and the strongest emotion available is pity, an emotion described in Greene's initial title for the novel as The Worst Passion of All. 6 Remembering his trial for the euthanasia of his terminally ill wife, Neale saw reflected in the crowded court the awful expression of pity. . . . He wanted to warn them don't pity me. Pity is cruel. Pity destroys. Love isn't safe when pity's prowling around. 7

Criminal Anxieties Criminal Jokes

Scarface And Pile Cocaine

Personality a pig would have to have to be edible, offered an exuberantly comic counterpoint to Lynch's nightmare vision of middle America. Tarantino's trademark moments - the plunging of a hypodermic into the breast of the untouchable, accidentally overdosed gangster's wife Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman), the double-crossing boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) and his mortal enemy Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) taken prisoner by a pair of homosexual rapists much more dangerous than they are, the accidental point-blank shooting of the gang member being asked by Vincent Vega (John Travolta) whether he believes in miracles - treat criminal violence as a cosmic joke whose point, like the threat of nuclear holocaust in Dr. Strangelove (1964), is precisely that jokes are an inadequate response to death, chaos, and annihilation. The nature of Lynch's and Tarantino's jokey send-ups of contemporary social anxieties by translating them into impossibly elaborate criminal plots inaugurated a hip new...

The Structure of the Emotion System

Positioning the face can produce a low level of emotional expression or modify emotional experience, but to suggest that the face is crucial to the emotion system would contradict our understanding of emotional flexibility. Although we often conceive of particular facial expressions as part of an emotion's prototype (smiling for happiness, frowning for anger, etc.), there is no evidence that the face is necessary or sufficient to produce emotional In this proposed model, emotion nodes are not only connected to the multiple input channels, but they also can be connected to other emotion nodes. Accessing one emotion node tends to activate other nodes that are associatively linked. This proposed linkage of emotion nodes gives an explanation for why certain emotions (anger and depression, for example) may often be seen together. A member of the network can potentially be linked to virtually any other network node, opening up the possibility that associative links can be built between such...

Comedy of Displacement

The Allen character tries to cope with life and desperately wants to fulfill his dream of the good life by finding the perfect companion and the perfect job. Quite often he is successful in attaining these goals, at least for a time, but when he does, he finds that they inevitably fail to bring lasting happiness. He accepts defeat as one who really never deserves success, or, to put it more precisely, as one who does not deserve to live among the successful. He belongs back in Brooklyn and has to suffer for thinking he could make it in Manhattan. Chaplin lashes out at others for his defeat Allen lashes out at himself.

Discussing Class During The Cold

Social problem films in Hollywood ebbed in favor of mega-budget spectaculars that promoted happiness and fulfillment through consumerism. Bigger was better in Hollywood in the 1950s bigger sets, bigger crowds of extras, even bigger screens with the advent of CinemaScope. Such a drift to escapist celebrations of conspicuous materialism occurred throughout most of Europe by the end of the 1950s. With US support behind the scenes, the Socialist Party in Italy was voted out of power, and an ''Economic Miracle'' began. The new government was outspoken in its criticism of how neorealism portrayed Italian society, and by the end of the decade neorealism had been replaced by high-gloss sex comedies and big-budget peplum (sword and sandal) films. The United Kingdom also saw the rise of an affluent society during the 1960s, and the image of the ''angry young man'' was succeeded by the icon of James Bond, who reveled in high-tech gadgets, casinos, and ''shaken, not stirred'' martinis. Yet, even...

Cybernetics for modeling behavior

Games like The Sims highlight the fact that digital simulations are complex and dynamic systems that create increasingly convincing representations of human behavior and sociability. The Sims is one of the most popular desktop computer games and has significant proliferation through photo albums that are posted on the Web (Sims version of 'my home page'), 'skins' (character or environment texture maps that players can design and import into the game) and the development of theme-based communities in The Sims Online. 5 Many players develop Sim households that explore their own family and relationship situations and develop significant bonds with their simulated creatures. The gameplay then occupies a similar position to the observational documentary in constructing the appearance of a lived situation. Indeed Mark J.P Wolf puts forward the argument that a simulation might be special mode of documentary - a subjunctive documentary in the way that it employs simulation models to offer...

FOCUS Editing and Film Form Realism

Aspects of Raging Bull such as the performances and art direction give a strong sense of realism or naturalism, but also go far beyond. Michael Chapman's black and white photography can be taken as serving to evoke the boxing films of the period itself, but its bright and stark contrast also becomes yet another externalisation of Jake's electric anger. The fights seem either like hyper-reality or the opposite for Jake - either the time where he is most alive, or just an intense experience that makes up for the failures in what really is 'life'. Reflective sadness breaks through as an essential aspect of Raging Bull, and the feeling that Jake could have had happiness but threw it away is strongest in the post-fight scene that carries us from his hand gently nursed in a bucket of ice, to (colour) home-movie footage of family life with Jake, Vickie, Joey and his wider family enjoying the idyllic lightness of existence that is possible. The scratched but carefree images are intercut with...

Kubrick New Worlds And Old

Barry Lyndon is based on William Thackeray's novel about a young Irishman who believes that the acquisition of wealth and status will position him for happiness. Sadly, the means he chooses to succeed condemn him to fail. This eighteenth-century morality tale moves from Ireland to the Seven Years War on the continent to Germany and finally to England.

Counter Cultural Agendas

The 'cynical' part of the argument would be its implications for the idealism of the period, the aesthetics of the films, and the politics of their makers. For if there is one theme that informs most of the essays, it is the value placed on the socially critical impact of the films, as well as the counter-cultural engagement of the directors and writers. This does not mean that the American auteurs had to belong to the left in the European sense of the term, or even liberal in the U.S. sense (though many were). They could flaunt their love for the wide open spaces of the American West and indulge in anti-modernist sentiments about cities, which Middle America might also have endorsed. But the landscapes and settings of New Hollywood show the ravages of an exploitative civilisation, at the same time as they still hold out the promise of an unspoilt nature, glimpsed, as it were, out of the corner of the eye. Above all, there is the notable bias for the underdog, the outsider, the...

Exercise Ah but Theres So Much at Risk

Player 2 Rudolph, We did not expect you for another week. Quick, then, tell us her response. Ah, but there is so much at risk Do we dare to hear it Do we dare to learn whether we shall ever know true happiness Do we dare to learn whether we are loved where we are bold enough to love Do we dare to learn whether

Text Interpretation

Finally, a sense of time and place is critical in Harron's text interpretation. There would have been no Valerie Solanas without the sex- and drug-obsessed New York of the 1960s, and there would have been no Patrick Bateman without the greed is good philosophy of 1980s New York, a time when junk bonds and brand names in all things from soap to suits were the epitome of making it. Harron weaves the sense of time and place throughout her films indeed, they transcend individualism and the love-work nexus that Freud placed at the center of his interpretation of happiness. The culture of narcissism that thrived in the 1960s and 1980s is about as far away from the positive goals and attainments of those eras as is possible. And these are the worlds of Valerie Solanas and Patrick Bateman.

Melodrama Is Adaptable to the Issues of the

When the downturn of coal mining was a central concern of British society, films such as John Ford's How Green Was My Valley and Carol Reed's The Stars Look Down were produced. Today, sexual abuse and incest, particularly concerning children, is a powerful issue. Films like John Smith's The Boys of St. Vincent, Angelica Huston's Bastard Out of Carolina, Tod Solondz's Happiness, all attest to the power of this issue in the public consciousness.

Somme and Douaumont monuments for the unknown soldier

Originally, Somme was an English film the pictures had been shot by Sidney Blythe and Frederick Young. Heinz Paul then adapted the film to be shown to German audiences. Apart from the fact that he added - mostly reconstructed - (German) images of Victor Gluck and Georg Bruckbauer to the film, Paul also wove a fictional story line though the film, for which he used professional German actors.92 The protagonists in the fictional plot are three brothers. They are fighting at the front line and were killed in action, to the dismay of their mother. It is no real coincidence that Hermine Sterler played the role of the mother. In previous films, Volk in Not (1925) and Deutsche FrauenDeutsche Treue (1928) she already played a German mother in times of war, and with great success (see chapter 6). In the fictional part, the recording tone of the documentary part is abandoned. Instead, the film pulls the audience to the emotions of the three brothers - their happiness when they accidentally meet...

Put Away Your Detective Work

All of the work you have put into understanding the text should now be locked away in a drawer hidden from the actor. Much of it will not help them in its present form. Take an example from Apple Pie. Telling the Counterman that the dynamic relationship between him and Female Cop is my happiness will probably not help him. It is nonspecific. Instead, you will make sure the actor understands just how the Female Cop makes him happy something concrete, such as her pure pleasure in eating the pie.

Dynamic Relationships

What are the relevant dynamic relationships for the characters in Apple Pie For Counterman, Female Cop could be a sex goddess. That would work for our story. So would my happiness. I prefer the latter because it would impart a different tone to Counterman's psychology one I believe more interesting, and more in keeping with the tone I would be striving for as director of this piece. How does Female Cop see Counterman How about Mr. Reliable That does all the work we need from a dynamic relationship. I would keep it. But Counterman is not Mr. Reliable to Customer. What is he If we pay heed to our circumstance, at the moment Customer comes through the door he should see Counterman as what Servant Doesn't do the job at all. Ally Too general. How about Celebrant

The First Decades Of Sound

One of the most popular films of the period, Hon dansade en sommar (One Summer of Happiness, Arne Mattsson, 1951), embodies the city versus country motif in a doomed love affair, narrated in an extended flashback to underscore a sense of fatalism. Documentary filmmaker Arne Sucksdorff (1917-2001) also focused on the pastoral in nature shorts like Skuggor over snon (Shadows on the Snow, 1949), using cross-cutting to introduce dramatic tension and narrative continuity. Genre distinctions are blurred in Sucksdorffs feature-length Det stora aventyret (The Great Adventure, 1953), which combines extensive documentary footage of animals and the natural world with a fictional parable about the lost paradise of childhood innocence. Nostalgia is

Definition And History

In common with the Hollywood melodrama, the woman's picture's characteristic themes involve moral dilemmas and conflicts associated with sexuality, home, and family, commonly set in a middle-class milieu and played out in stories of the fates of individuals. However, the woman's picture departs from the melodrama in two key respects in the focus and trajectory of its narrative concerns and in its rhetoric. Within the setting of the family, issues that may be seen as of particular concern to women are explored, while at the same time a typical plotline of the woman's picture carries the story from a woman's desire, through her transgression of ''appropriate'' codes of female behavior and consequent temporary happiness,

Franois Truffaut on Editing

In 'Jules et Jim'4 editing likewise plays an important part because there were many improvised scenes that could be placed here or there I had thought up many short skits for the chalet scenes, and with the script girl we classified them as scenes of happiness, scenes of unhappiness. The editing of 'Jules et Jim' consisted in finding a kind of equilibrium will this bit of film go better after a scene of happiness or after a scene of unhappiness That was another work, special, exhilarating.5

Censorship in the United Kingdom

As a sign of changing times, the BBFC has passed uncut several films which have featured explicit sex scenes that seem to have crossed over the line of what was previously thought in good taste, particularly Romance (1999) and Idiots (1999) but Happiness (1998), American Pie (1999) and There's Something About Mary (1998) have also tested the boundaries. Furthermore, the Board has classified films that had caused controversy on their original release in the 1970s. Straw Dogs (1971) and The Exorcist (1973) received video classifications for the first time The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and A Clockwork Orange (1971) - the latter withdrawn by Stanley Kubrick himself - were both passed for cinema screening, while The Driller Killer (1979), demon of the 'video nasties' hysteria of the 1980s, was passed and screened after the distributing company itself made cuts. In 1998 the proportion of '18' films dropped to 16 per cent and cuts were required in only 14 films, 3.6 per cent of the...

FOCUS Auteur

At the core of this film, too, is an unsettling failure to grasp the nature of love itself. No one here - not Scottie, Madeline, or the lovelorn Midge (Barbara Bel Geddes) - can quite work out what it means to live freely and healthily with others. Notice how the camera makes the characters seem so alone in their sterile rooms, how the microphone captures them muttering in flat tones, as though to speak openly were to set off a trail of emotional dynamite. This must be one of the most erotic films ever produced by Fifties Hollywood, yet the sexuality seems to be squeezed out under a terrible pressure. Moreover, once these passions are exposed, the experience is not one of release, but of pain. The viewer senses that everyone would be happier if they could be turned into stone.

Painted Glass

Norman Dawn Matte Box

The glass painting technique is one of the earliest techniques used to combine, or composite, additional visual information onto action footage. It is one of several foundations of the compositing process to be explored here. This technique was perfected by mid-twentieth century and was in use worldwide. Graphic examples of the work of John Graysmark, designer of Courage Under Fire (1996), Blown Away (1994), So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993), White Sands (1992), Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (1991), Gorillas in the Mist The Story of Dian Fossey (1988), Duet for One (1986), The Bounty (1984), Ragtime (1981) will serve to expand the text throughout the rest of this chapter. As my early mentor, his invaluable experience appropriately illustrates examples of traditional moviemaking techniques through his early art directing filmography, including Anastasia (1956), Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958), 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968), and Young Winston (1972). (Note All drawings and sketches...

Hollywood Mythmaking

In The Gangster as Tragic Hero (1948), Warshow emphasizes by contrast the specificity of the gangster genre in posing a resistant alternative to the prevailing myth of optimism and social happiness that amounts to an unofficial imperative of democratic cultures. Unlike 'happy' movies like Good News (1947), which ignores death and suffering, and 'sad' movies like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945), which uses death and suffering as incidents in the service of a higher optimism, gangster films express that sense of desperation and inevitable failure which optimism itself helps to create. The gangster of Hollywood mythology - a figure much better known to most audiences than any actual gangsters - expresses the ethos of the city not the real city, but that dangerous and sad city of the imagination which is so much more important, which is the modern world. And his pure criminality, which becomes at once the means to success and the content of success, shows, through the rise and fall of his...

Ian Conrich

This chapter explores both the cult musical and musical performance as a component of the cult film, and will suggest that in post-classical cinema the classical form of this particular genre of production has been largely subverted. Musical performance in the cult film frequently works as a deliberate and knowing perversion of the cultural values, performances, subjects and utopian aspects of the classical musical film, which used to be so central to movie production at many of Hollywood's studios. Perhaps most striking here is the depiction of a screen dystopia, which will be explored in relation to the horror-musical hybrid and movies in which horror and the musical among other genres combine, and which has led to such cult films as The Little Shop of Horrors (1986), Joe's Apartment (1996), Alfred Packer The Musical (aka, Cannibal The Musical, 1996), Katakuri-ke no kofuku (The Happiness of the Elsewhere, Dyer has argued that 'musicals are discourses of happiness . . . These...

An Italian job

The American films, which were watched by an estimated five million Italians per week in early April, were among the most effective of all media used in the pre-election propaganda drive. Evidence suggests that Ninotchka was the most prominent of all. Following State Department requests, distributors doubled the movie's print numbers. Special arrangements were made so the film could be shown among the lower-income population. Italian communists made several attempts to forestall the showing of Ninotchka, including threatening movie-theatre managers if they did not remove it from programmes and stealing copies from cinemas. When Russia's embassy asked the Rome authorities in early April to take Ninotchka out of the city's ten theatres in which it had been showing for several weeks, the publicity probably added to the film's nationwide success.52 'What licked us was Ninotchka', one disappointed Communist party functionary is reported to have said when the pro-Soviet left was defeated at...

Martin F Norden

Despite our ongoing fascination with the concept of evil, what do we really know about it Ervin Staub, a Holocaust survivor and author of such critical texts as The Roots of Evil The Origins of Genocide and Other Group Violence and The Psychology of Good and Evil Why Children, Adults and Groups Help and Harm Others, has suggested that its essence is the destruction of human beings. This includes not only killing but the creation of conditions that materially or psychologically destroy or diminish people's dignity, happiness, and capacity to fulfil basic material needs. 11 Evil as a general subject has long been an area of inquiry for theologians, philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologists, amongst others, but it has attracted relatively little in-depth writing from film television scholars. There are, of course, numerous studies of specific genres that trade heavily in evil, such as war, horror, and science fiction it is the rare monograph or edited volume,...

Superior Knowledge

The ending forcefully allies us with Stella because of the recent shift from feeling for her to feeling with. The text asks us largely to side with Stella (and not Laurel or Stephen) through its manipulation of narrative knowledge and through the visual strategies Kaplan identifies (e.g., placing the camera with Stella outside the window). Yet to describe this ending in terms of multiple identifications does injustice to the text's devices to make the audience feel with Stella at this moment. The emotional appeal of this moment is not unitary, however, and cannot be entirely assumed under a purely patriarchal reading strategy, as Kaplan suggests. The emotions elicited here are multiple because there are overlapping emotion scripts that can be applied to the ending (sadness, pride, happiness, love, shame). An understanding of the complex network of emotion scripts can do more precisely what Williams was trying to do in her argument to open up Stella Dallas's ending to multiple reading...

Fred inglis

In addressing myself to the English and their Englishness I intend no offence, these neurotically offendable days, either to Scots, Welsh or Irish still ambivalently gathered under the heading 'British' (and still formally recognising the Union Jack as their national flag), still less to the 5 per cent of the population whose parents left the old empire some time between 1950 and 1970 or so for the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as held out in Birmingham, Bradford, Liverpool, East London and elsewhere. In part, indeed, I am addressing that smallish diaspora, since they came to what was thought of, not inaccurately, as the parent-nation in expectation of what parents should give, and that parent in particular comfort, support, shelter, justice, authority, steadiness, love, trustworthiness. These were qualities which, it was alleged, the British at large and the English as dominant had contrived into the practices of a culture and the formations of a state. Those...

Sunset Boulevard

The next excerpt we will explore takes place at the end of Sunset Boulevard. In a fit of jealousy and rage, Norma Desmond has shot and killed Joe Gillis (nobody leaves Norma Desmond). The police attempt to talk to Norma but she is mute. Her manservant (Erich Von Stroheim) is aware of the large gathering of media downstairs, waiting to shoot lurid footage for the evening news. He suggests that Norma will respond to the cameras, and the police agree to take Norma downstairs. When he tells Norma that the cameras are waiting, she is engaged and alert but still in her own reality. She descends the stairs and responds to the cameras as if she were performing. At the bottom of the stairs, she expresses her happiness. She is ready for her close-up. The film ends as she moves toward the cameras, certain she will never again leave her fans.

Cynthia Baron

And indeed the worst of my faults was a certain impatient gaiety of disposition, such as has made the happiness of many, but such as I found it hard to reconcile with my imperious desire to carry my head high, and wear a more than commonly grave countenance before the public. Hence it came about that I concealed my pleasures.

The Brewing Storm

This storm marks the emotional turning point in the film. Thereafter, the mood is somber, melancholy. An intertitle tersely informs us that y ears have passed. Henriette is married to Anatole. The Sundays are now as sad as the Mondays. The film's last sequence shows us Henriette and Anatole revisiting the site ofHenri and Henriette's rendezvous. The married Henriette sees Henri, and both assert that they have not found happiness since their tryst. I come here often, Henri says, My tenderest memories are here. The married Henriette confesses, And I think of them every night. Husband Anatole calls her away from this brief meeting, and Henri watches as the couple rows away across the river.

Professional Women

Schackel, in her examination of the function of women in the Western, has concluded that women's roles are imbued with traits traditionally considered feminine passivity, dependence, gentleness, and sensitivity, among others. . . . T hey must ultimately depend on a man for their happiness and security (196). This description does not apply to the women in The Professionals. All three featured in this movie are, on one level, professional women.
