Genre II - 11/2/10 Genre reflects culture; if culture changes, genre changes -WWII: female got sense of herself and of culture while men were gone; that culture was wrong; and she was not fulfilled/happy/respected like she ought to be - Woman’s role changed from the victim to the victor - Identity problems; suffering mental issues - female was older and aggressive (cougars) because they found out that they lived longer 1948-1957: Television boom made movies more popular (over radio) -We became fascinated with Europe, thus foreign film (German expressionalism) came to influence American film in the 20’s with unformulaic movies (did not follow a single genre) Types of Experimentation: Topical Accommodation: (I’ll Climb the Highest Mountain) concerns itself with topics of the time like a Post-War American film but it’s not in your face, it’s weaved in Parody: “Two-level home” has great affection to what it mimics as well as critiques it

    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.
