Hollywood Films Written By and About Women, Part 2

Featured in Pipeline Artists by Hilary Van Hoose on Mar. 31, 2023

Ready for 10 more womanly wonders from cinema history?

This time we're starting at the demise of the Golden Age and running clear into the 1980s.

In Part 1 of this series, I talked about some films that marked the first half-century of Hollywood cinema. With the burgeoning technology that put “talking pictures” in theaters came consolidation of power through monopolization and vertical integration that put (male) bankers and Wall Street investors in positions powerful enough to begin excising female execs and creatives. But as if that wasn't bad enough, it was also no coincidence that when the big studios decided to unionize in the 1920s, most of those labor unions didn't allow female members.

Even after all that, certain events leading to the end of Golden Age created a seismic shift in the film industry.
