Femnista: Classic Hollywood (Jan/Feb 2016)
What you have here is a superb collection of articles revolving around the films and actors of classic Hollywood, mainly the period of time between the 1930s and the 1950s, although there are plenty of 1960s films that I consider top notch classic Hollywood fare.
While I haven't fully read through the issue yet, I can already recommend the articles on Audrey Hepburn and Sherlock Holmes, which at this point is as far as I've gotten. Both of those articles struck a chord in me, and the one about Audrey reminded me how very much I love and admire her, both as an actress and as a woman.
My articles this time around are on James Cagney and the film East of Eden starring James Dean. Yes, I know two articles, but Charity was kind enough to let me write more than one since she knows how much I adore the classics.
I hope you enjoy this issue as much as the countless authors enjoyed writing it!
In this issue: James Cagney, The Philadelphia Story, Audrey Hepburn, Sherlock Holmes, Mae West, Sorry Wrong Number, John Wayne & Maureen O’Hara, The Honeymooners, Judy Garland, East of Eden, Norma Shearer.
Next issue: Keeping the Faith (March/April). See upcoming issues.
