  • Under the Yum Yum Tree

    Classic Film Through a Feminist Lens: UNDER THE YUM YUM TREE

    Under the Yum Yum Tree is one of many light sex comedies which came out of Hollywood in the early 1960s. The film starts strong; however, half way through it forgets what it is. In fact, the characters find themselves awkwardly shoehorned into the socially acceptable gender roles, and the film meanders into simple “rom com” territory. Under the Yum Yum Tree follows college students Robin (Carol Linley) and Dave (Dean Jones). Very much a serious and long-term couple, Robin won’t give into Dave’s pleas […]

    CON MAN Review: (S02E10) Dawn of Girth

    This episode, entitled the “Dawn of Girth” is very literally that. For much of Con Man, the primary conflict has been between Wray (Alan Tudyk) and his internal demons.

Just as Wray thinks Doctor, Cop, Lawyer is finally his, he learns he’s competing against a long lost Hemsworth brother, Girth (Liam McIntyre) for the part. And it seems, Girth has no […]

    Classic Film Through a Feminist Lens: BELL BOOK AND CANDLE

    The subject of witchcraft in history is one which is deeply tied to women’s issues and feminism. The depiction of witches in popular culture has evolved from the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz, to Samantha Stevens in Bewitched, and finally to the ladies of American Horror Story: Coven. In analyzing these many examples, the witches are always women, often single and always independent. The 1958 film Bell Book and Candle pulls the witches (this time played by Kim Novak and Elsa Lancaster) out […]
