From Reverence to Rape by Molly Haskell
Book DescriptionFor this edition of her classic study of the feminine role in film, Molly Haskell has written a new chapter addressing recent developments in the appearance and perception of women in the movies. "An incisive, exceedingly thoughtful look at the distorted lens through which Hollywood has historically viewed women. It is a valuable contribution not just of film criticism but to a society in which the vital role of women is just beginning to emerge." "Christian Science Monitor" "Haskell is interested in women how they are used in movies, how they use movies, and how the parts they play function as projections and verifications of our myths about women's lot and woman's psyche and even, lately, women's lib." Jane Kramer, "Village Voice" "In examining the goddesses worshipped by an entire nation, Molly Haskell reveals a good deal about our national character and our most cherished sexual myths. . . . Concerned with the deeply ingrained belief of women's inferiority, she analyzes movies as a social product as well as a social arbiter, and she effectively demonstrates how women are encouraged to impose limitations on themselves by fashioning those selves after flickering shadows in a darkened auditorium sexual creatures who possess neither ability nor ambition beyond their bodies. . . . Both as an examination of film and as sociology, "From Reverence to Rape" is excellent." Harriet Kriegel, "The Nation""

Steven Spielberg, Hardback (January 2017)
A film-centric portrait of the extraordinarily gifted movie director whose decades-long influence on American popular culture is unprecedented
Frankly, My Dear, Paperback (March 2010)» View all books by Molly Haskell
How and why has the saga of Scarlett O'Hara kept such a tenacious hold on the American imagination for almost three-quarters of a century? Sensitive to the ways in which history and cinema intersect, the author reminds us why these characters, so riveting to Depression audiences, continue to fascinate seventy years later.
