Mainstream media perspective

The press tends to focus on entertainment from a male perspective. They talk about violence a lot more than they do sex (this may take you by surprise, but just think about it). They use special effects and overproduce. That last also applies to the music industry. Remember when songs were simple? And when movie plots were driven by character?


The Other Side

Amphiist is not just about religion and politics, although looking at both sides of religious and political issues is obviously important. Amphiist is also about entertainment. It’s about emotion. When they did what’s called ‘women’s pictures’ when Hollywood began, through the 1940s, women in the family decided which films to see. Therefore, the plots were designed to appeal to the whole family, especially those who wished to see character-driven drama and comedy. The plots were not complicated with special effects.

The Golden Age of the movies was the 1930s and ‘40s. The Golden Age for television was in the 1970s to ‘90s, inclusive. Natural talent carried the day, rather than producers deciding someone had the right look and then practically forcing them to become popular.

Stars like Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer and Barbara Stanwyck were the go-to women if you wanted to see charisma and sheer talent. Their roles were very feminine during the classic time frame and can tell us much about how women were viewed almost a century ago. We have a lot to learn from them. Sin was handled very differently, as we will see in upcoming issues.
