A marvelous actress, Gloria Grahame (1923–1981) was also an iconic figure of film noir. Her talents are showcased in several classic motion pictures of the 1940s and 1950s, including It’s a Wonderful Life, Crossfire, In a Lonely Place, The Greatest Show on Earth, The Big Heat, Oklahoma!, and The Bad and the Beautiful, for which she earned an Academy Award. This comprehensive overview of Gloria Grahame’s life and work examines each of her feature films in detail, as well as her made-for-television productions, her television-series appearances and her stage career. Also discussed are the varied ways in which Grahame’s acting performances were affected by her tumultuous personal life—which included four marriages, the second to director Nicholas Ray and the fourth to Ray’s stepson Anthony.
"From advertising to health education campaigns, sex and sexual imagery now permeate every aspect of advanced capitalist culture. Striptease Culture explores this 'sexualisation' of contemporary life, relating it to wider changes in post-war society. Divided into three sections, Striptease Culture first traces the development of pornography from the mid-nineteenth century, following its movement from elite to mass culture and the contemporary fascination with 'porno-chic'. In Part 2 McNair considers popular cultural forms of sexual representation in the media. Moving from backlash elements in straight male culture and changing images of women to the representation of gays in film and television shows such as Ellen and Queer as Folk, McNair argues that the high profile of sexuality in contemporary culture, rather than evidence of moral decline, is a positive expression of post-war liberalism and the advance of feminism and gay rights, as well as a key contributor to public health education in the era of HIV and AIDS." "In Part 3, Striptease Culture turns to the uses of sexuality in contemporary art, examining the artistic 'striptease' of Jeff Koons and others, who have used their own naked bodies in their work. McNair also considers how feminist and gay artists have employed sexuality in the critique and transformation of patriarchy. In a concluding chapter, McNair considers the implications of the rise of striptease culture for the future of sexual politics."--BOOK JACKET.
