OOPS, I stand corrected! THE LAST PICTURE SHOW is set a whole decade earlier! (1951) (I shoulda known, it has a shot of Red River in it.)

And it's still more feminist than MAD MEN!

Daisy - What's pissing me off about Mad Men is watching the way that the men talk about the women, the lives that the women lead, the huge double standard...the usual suspects, really.

Yeah, I've long noticed that some artists can do "the past" and show sensitivity to women, and some just can't. I wonder what the difference is, if we tried to quantify it?

Check out THE LAST PICTURE SHOW if you have never seen it. Same time frame is represented as MAD MEN (rural Texas, not NYC), but the movie is very sensitive to women, and featured several feminist actors who gave their characters a definite feminist *spin*.

It's an amazing movie.



Cassandra - I will have to watch for that episode!...

What precisely is pissing you off about MAD MEN?

The platinum-blond woman's hairdo is exactly like the Mousketeer (sp? how do you spell mouseketeer?) named Cheryl... I pestered my mother for that hairdo, and all I can say now is THANK GOD she wouldn't do it! ;)

I watch it mostly for the gorgeous (and perfect! ) sets and fashions, which take me back to my childhood in just this way.

And all that cigarette-smoking! I remember ash-trays all over everyone's house.

I love Survivorman! And it amused me greatly that one of the nastiest environments he encountered so far was my own dear homeland, otherwise known as the Scottish Highlands. Mr. Cassandra has never quite believed me about how grim things are up there, and used to scoff at my tales of how hikers get lost up there.
He is scoffing no more. Also, peat bogs are really fucking scary.
