Moviediva Film Series

Moviediva Film Guide: Jan-Jun, 2019

What is the Moviediva Film Series? Those of you who know me from my nineteen years as Film Curator at the North Carolina Museum of Art, or, from my monthly WUNC Radio Appearances on The State of Things with Frank Stasio and Marsha Gordon, have an inkling about my taste already. This series will focus on Pre-Code Women, films from the early 1930s prior to the introduction of strict censorship in mid-1934. The films are frank about sex, and sometimes, murders go unpunished. There is plenty of scanty lingerie, hard-boiled attitudes about the Depression, and surprising roles for a diverse cast of characters; in one film the heroine's best friend is African American, in another Asian. There are great roles for women, even older women, who often provide the wise-cracking wisdom. The Art Deco glamor of the set and costumes still occupy a pinnacle of droolworthy style.
