Week 9 – Production process – The Lady Eve 02/03/2009 03:54:00 Production Process (from lecture, Bordwell & Thompson and Casper &  Edwards), examples from "The Lady Eve" and other relevant films —  The Lady Eve Opening title sequence = snake Apple Knocking Henry Fonda over, trips him, drops things on his head Her perfume intoxicates him Thematics = negative attitude toward love.  Stylization (comedy)   not a real life world; “formally stylized” Character – she is smart, she is a thief, she is a bitch (manipulative) Goal- to punish him She doesn’t reveal the truth at the end; he is choosing to cheat on his wife.  This  is a commentary on marriage: men are fickle, but women are gold-diggers Adam and Eve: women are manipulative He gives her the same speech at the end and she finishes it half way. Her narrating the event = knowledgeable and she understands “the game”  “The Game” – cards; gambling; love—is it real?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
