[SR: 2296805], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780300088151], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], Yale University Press, There is nothing like a dame, exuberantly declares the song from the multicultural world of "South Pacific", and proclaims, too, that a dame is a specific American creation, one of the things worth fighting for in our culture. This book validates that claim. It celebrates the fast-talking dames of thirties and forties screen comedy, women of lively wit and brash speech who became the most impressive model of indepedent, articulate American womanhood. Coming of age during the depression, they were quick on the uptake and hardly ever downbeat. They seemed to know what to say and when to say it. They weren't afraid of slang nor shy of the truth. In their fast and breezy talk seemed to lie the secret of happiness, but also the key to reality., 521000, Performing Arts, 1474, Dance, 11160393011, Individual Directors, 1099186, Magic & Illusion, 271614011, Reference, 2154, Theater, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4495, History & Criticism, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 194811011, Theory, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5031, World War II, 5011, Military, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 21, Reference, 11444, Almanacs & Yearbooks, 11448, Atlases & Maps, 2572, Careers, 11626, Catalogs & Directories, 11472, Consumer Guides, 11475, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 11713, Encyclopedias & Subject Guides, 11823, English as a Second Language, 11761, Etiquette, 11773, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 11880, Genealogy, 11902, Quotations, 8975382011, Survival & Emergency Preparedness, 5267710011, Test Preparation, 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 5267707011, Writing, Research & Publishing Guides, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11336, History, 11325, Women's Studies, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Title:

Fast-Talking Dames

ISBN:

0300088159

Witty and brash, the fast-talking dames in film comedies of the 1930s and '40s offered moviegoers a new, independent version of American womanhood. In this widely acclaimed book, Maria DiBattista paints vivid portraits of the grandest fast-talking dames of the era, including Katharine Hepburn, Irene Dunne, and Barbara Stanwyck, and discusses what their films had to say about men, happiness, and the power of speech.
