Both a work of feminist film criticism and theory and an analysis of popular culture, this provocative book examines from a cultural studies perspective the top-grossing film melodramas of that decade, including A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, EAST OF EDEN, IMITATION OF LIFE, and PICNIC." .
