Animation And Special Effects

Associated with the characters, and the increasing presence of the characters at film premieres, social functions etc. as live personae - people dressed up in character costumes. In the public imagination, the characters represented a curious mix between 'fantasy' and 'reality', in which the people could recognise human traits in what for the most part were drawn animal figures, but which were nevertheless recognisable as fictional constructs performing acts outside the human capacity. These included 'gags' that could only be performed as graphic phenomena 'titillatory' imagery which challenged the parameters of the body and social behaviour and interaction which had no parallel in cultural contexts. The 'symbolic' identity of the characters was well understood - Mickey as John Doe', Donald as 'the average irascible American' Betty as the sexually harassed 'flapper', Bugs as a 'wise-ass victor' - and this, in effect, was part of their currency as 'stars'. Their dominant traits...

Anne and Anita's environments provide a contrast to that of the millionaire Ben Blaine (Johnny Mack Brown) in his rural retreat and to the Spanish Colonial Revival surroundings of the party, complete with galleon frescoes. Meaning was also conveyed through the style of the actor's clothing. Diana is transformed into a respectable and acceptable partner for Blaine, a change symbolized by her losing her 'flapper' dress and donning a more conventional evening gown. Her rival Anne has tricked Blaine into courtship, falsely proclaiming in the inter-titles that 'I know I seem stupid - I can't be daring - and free

Europe The Double Perspective

From these two quotations one might derive a somewhat fanciful proposition. What if - at the end of the 19th century - Europe had been discovered by America rather than America being discovered by the Europeans at the end of the 15th century Counterfactual as this may seem, in a sense this is exactly what did happen, because with Henry James, Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Gertrud Stein, Josephine Baker and so many other US American writers, musicians, and artists exiling themselves temporarily or permanently in Europe, they gave a name to something that before was France, Britain, Germany, Spain, or Italy.3

Precursors

If Hayakawa struggled with the roles granted him by Hollywood, the options open to Anna May Wong (1905-1961) were limited still more. As a woman, Wong was typically cast as either a Butterfly or a Dragon Lady,'' the specifically orientalist inflections of the woman as victim and vamp. At the age of seventeen, Wong starred in The Toll of the Sea (1922), Technicolor's first feature film using its two-strip color process. The film's plot was lifted from Madame Butterfly. Lotus Flower surrenders her child to her American lover and his white wife and then commits suicide. This was the first of many roles in which convention dictated that Wong's character expire to redress the taboo of interracial romance. Citing her frustration with such limitations, Wong departed in 1928 for Europe, where she tackled some of the most interesting and complex roles of her career in films such as Schmutziges Geld (Song, 1928) and Piccadilly (1929). Wong's European roles were still orientalist, with her...

The Eternal Question

Evelyn Nesbit's career as an artists' model and chorus girl meant that she inhabited the commercial world in which the breakdown of class- and sex-segregated entertainments of the nineteenth century enabled the emergence of women as consumers. Lois Banner has shown how chorus girls were represented as exemplifying a new, modern concept of womanhood, one that involved independence, sexual freedom, and an enterprising, realistic attitude towards a career.61 Visible in particular in the redefinition of working-class female sexuality, this discourse had far-reaching implications for the formulation of middle-class femininity in the later 1910s and the 1920s through the figure of the flapper and the new woman.62 Indeed, Nes-

Bruce Babington

In the 1970s and in the 1980s, Country music increasingly featured on Hollywood film soundtracks, such as the use of 'Stand By Your Man' in Five Easy Pieces (1970). Narratives employed 'Country' milieu and stressed 'Country' over metropolitan values (as in Eastwood's Every Which Way But Loose, 1980, and Any Which Way You Can, 1980, Honky Tonk Man, 1982, Tender Mercies, 1983, and Pure Country, 1992). Country performers such as Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Rogers, and Dolly Parton achieved super stardom. However, in the 1990s the musical biopic largely emigrated to television where the wider biopic genre proliferated energetically. Though it has been plausibly argued that made-for-television biopics exhibit less interest in stars than in 'ordinary people' suddenly elevated into fame, the musical biopic has flourished on television with filmic lives of such stars as Josephine Baker, Little Richard, Frankie Lymon, Frank Sinatra and Liberace.3 Any taxonomy of the Country music sub-genre...

The It Girl

Clara Gordon Bow was the fantasy girl of the 1920s, the beautiful, seemingly demure flapper who thumbed her nose at convention and respectability - although, as she said herself 'Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt, and bewildered.'
