It seems that when you want to make a woman into a hero, you hurt her first. When you want to make a man into a hero, you hurt… also a woman first. Leigh Alexander absolutely hits it out of the park (via bedabug)

I made this precarious time line of Disney films and its events. The locations and dates can be wrong; the timeline is based on the scenarios, clothing and events from the films, and on Pixar Theory and on drawings by Claire Hummel.

Women in Pre-Code Hollywood

During the days of silent film women were often portrayed as simple stereotypes, the ingenue, the saint, the fallen woman or the vamp, to name a few.

However during the what is now known as the Pre-Code era, the portrayal of women in film, grew from the stereotypes like the ingenue and the vamp into something more.

No longer stereotypes, these screen women had become complicated. This combination of sensuality, independence and playfulness, made them fascinating to watch and completely modern - Complicated Women (1993)

Women were shown to be independent, clever, capable and free to enjoy themselves in whatever way they chose to without consequence.

The twenty-five-year-old former Mack Sennett bathing beauty was petrified at the prospect of acting opposite the screen’s aging Lothario, not to mention carrying a picture with him. Fortunately, the problem was confronted head on and solved on the first day of rehearsals. Hawks often asserted that his famous private bit of direction to Lombard regarding how she should handle Barrymore took place on the first day of shooting, but the celebrating “kicking” scene in the train was not actually filmed until the third week of production, by which time Lombard was very much in the groove of her performance. In rehearsal, however, in a precise reflection of the predicament of her character, Lombard was initially very stiff, “emoting all over the place. She was trying very hard and it was just dreadful,” explained Hawks. Barrymore was patient with her but at one point “began to hold his nose.” Becoming concerned, Hawks asked the actress to take a walk with him. “I asked how much money she was getting for the picture. She told me and I said, ‘What would you say if I told you you’d earned your whole salary this morning and didn’t have to act anymore?’ And she was stunned. So I said, ‘Now forget about the scene. What would you do if someone said such and such to you?’ And she said, 'I'd kick him in the balls'. And I said, ‘Well, he said something like that to you— Why don’t you kick him?’ She said, ‘Are you kidding?’ And I said, ‘No.’” Hawks’ parting remark was, “Now we’re going back in and make this scene and you kick, and you do any damn thing that comes into your mind that’s natural, and quit acting. If you don’t quit, I’m going to fire you this afternoon.” The direction worked, and Lombard's natural spirited quality came through unchecked in her performance. Hawks claimed, “She never began another picture after that without sending me a telegram that said, 'I'm gonna start kicking him.' (Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood.)

5 reasons to love Xavier Dolan:

1-He’s only 25 but he already wrote and directed 5 movies, the first one when he was 19 years old.
2- He’s the producer, director and writer of all of his movies. And actor in some of them too. Oh, and he’s also the director of photography. And the film loader, casting director, set and costume designer. He’s also the guy who buys donuts. 
3- Just look at him. He’s like the canadian god of flawless.
4- His movies are reeeeally good. Four of his films got into cannes, each one awarded a prize.
5- He actually wrote this letter to Leonardo DiCaprio when he was 8.
