9780813125435: Royal Portraits in Hollywood: Filming the Lives of Queens
Críticas:

"Combining biographical sketches and excerpts from letters and journals, Ford and Mitchell show how filmmaking and our society's perceptions of gender have changed....by examining the lives of these women, the authors reveal not only society's perceptions about female power but also how these perceptions continue to evolve." -- "magbooks.com"

Reseña del editor:

Few lives provide as much history or drama as those of monarchs. Filmmakers from the silent era onward have displayed a deep fascination with the lives of royalty and with queens in particular. Still, the question remains: what do these films really tell us about the women beneath the crowns? Drawing on films from the 1930s to those of today, "Royal Portraits in Hollywood" investigates the ways in which these films reproduce history and represent women. Though hardly progressive in nature, many early films offered a nonthreatening way to present strong female characters in an economic and social landscape run almost exclusively by men. Elizabeth A. Ford and Deborah C. Mitchell track the evolution of queens in film, noting how depictions of prominent women have changed over the past several decades and calling attention to the ways in which films both reflect and dictate the social norms of their eras. By comparing historical records of monarchs such as Queen Christina of Sweden, Catherine the Great, Cleopatra, and Elizabeth I with their onscreen personas, Ford and Mitchell present a fascinating inquiry into issues of historical accuracy and gender politics in film.
