Chick Flick

    Essay 3 will be about one of the films mentioned by Linda Seger in her article "Creating the Myth." The film being Romancing the Stone, which star was a female. At the time the film was made more women were given leading role. The article found "Chick Flicks: Contemporary Women at the Movies" by Susan Ferriss and Mallory Young provides a historical overview of the journey of women in movies, from the "weepies" of the 1920s and 30s to the warriors of today. Such films were and are still considered chick flicks as they targeted the female population and in the case of Romancing the Stone is also considered a romantic comedy.
