Has Film Influenced Lifestyles and Human Behavior in the 20th Century?
During the 20th century, film has been
a powerful media in which to influence people's lifestyles and human behavior.
Film is for people who do not enjoy reading or other more stimulating leisure
and want to be entertained or escape from everyday life. Movies gave
society a great way to see vintage fashion, including how to wear period
accessories that accompany the clothing. Movies also gave society
a view of actors portraying wartime heroes, rebels or gangsters, which
may influence peoples human behavior.
The film industry introduced flapper movies
in the early days. The flapper wore short hair and a short skirt, with
turned-down hose and powdered knees. The flapper must have seemed
to her mother like a rebel. Flappers offended the older generation
because they defied conventions of acceptable feminine behavior.
They used make-up and wore baggy dresses, which often exposed their arms
as well as their legs from the knees down. The flapper movies were
modern and influenced a revolution in fashion.
During the time of the Great Depression,
film was a source of cheerful escapism for most. People were out
of work, but they did manage to find money to go the movies. Even
during the darkest days of the Depression, movie attendance was between
60-75 million per week. The balancing act for film making was to
both reflect the realism and cynicism of the Depression period. They
also provided escape entertainment to boost the morale of the public by
optimistically reaffirming values such as thrift and perseverance.
During The Golden Age of Hollywood, movies
were under strict enforcement and censorship. Film studios submitted
their films for review and if they met the strict standards of decency
they could be released. Regulations of the code included censorship
of language, references to sex, violence, and morality. Without a
seal, films were threatened with negative publicity and potential box-office
failure. Movies were not allowed to portray gangsters as heroes.
Movies of this time, basically influenced people to have better moral standards.
The American film industry was extremely
prolific, affluent, powerful and productive during the war years.
The world was headed toward rearmament and warfare in the early to mid-1940s,
and the movie industry, like every other aspect of life, responded by making
movies, producing many war-time favorites. These movies offered escapist
entertainment, reassurance, and patriotic themes and morale boosters for
In the period following the war, post-war
affluence increased choice of leisure time activities, conformity, middle-class
values, a baby boom, the invention of television, drive-in theaters, and
a youth reaction to middle-aged cinema. When most of the films were
idealized with conventional portrayals of men and women, young people wanted
new and exciting symbols of rebellion. The film industry responded
by producing a number movies with portrayals of young men and women rebelling
against the establishment. "Rebel Without A Cause" was a movie about a
rebellious, misunderstood, middle-class youth who had difficulty relating
to his parents. This movie influenced the audience that it was okay
to act in a rebellious way to get attention.
When looking back on the film history of
the 20th century you begin to realize the great impact these films had
on people's lifestyles and human behavior. Movies influenced they
way people dressed and the way people acted. We as, movie goers,
must choose what is morally right or wrong and not be influenced by the
film industry. We must also choose what is a fashion statement and
what is not. The film industry may be protected under the freedom
of speech amendment, but we do not have to be influenced by what they project
in their movies.

Baroque StyleBaroque Style Baroque Style The Baroque style was a style in which the art and artists of the time focused upon details, and intricate designs.

From upbringing to influences, the differences are represented in the music and those who live for it. They might be under the same category but there are very few comparisons that

History of Arabic MusicHistory of Arabic Music History of Arabic Music Arabic music is my favorite musical styling. Although I have come to enjoy classical and contemporary styling as well, Arabic music has almost an innate quality of enjoyment for me. Its songs speak of the life and culture of Arabic countries and its melody is not commonly heard on American radio stations. Its songs tell the story of the Arabic people, people who are similar to Americans but also different in many ways. The songs are a romantic and

Yet at times these two forces within Cicero clash and contradict with the early stoic teachings. Cicero gradually adopted the stoic lifestyle but not altogether entirely, and this is somewhat due to the fact of what it was like to be a roman of the time. The morals of everyday Rome conflicted with some of the stoic ideals that were set by early stoicism. Thus, Cicero c

Passivity has been a lifelong threat, laziness a constant lure in my search for identity.

Candide - Voltaire's Writing StyleCandide - Voltaire\'s Writing Style In Candide, Voltaire uses many writing techniques which can also be found in the works of Cervantes, Alighieri, Rabelais and Moliere. The use of the various styles and conventions shows that, despite the passage of centuries and the language differences, certain writing techniques will always be effective. One common literary technique is the author\'s use of one or more of his characters as his \'voice\' to speak out the authors views on a certain subject. Fo
Frankenstein - Analysis of SocietyFrankenstein - Analysis of Society Society is inevitable. It will always be there as a pleasure and a burden. Society puts labels on everything as good or bad, rich or poor, normal or aberrant. Although some of these stamps are accurate, most of them are misconceptions. In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley this act of erring by society is extremely evident. One example of this judgment is the way the family is looked upon. They are seen by society as the lower-class. They work every day on

The Taming of the ShrewThe Taming of the Shrew In Shakespeare\'s comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, one of the main ways that the theme is shown is by mistaken identity. The main theme of this play is that what a person is really like is more important than how they appear to be. This is shown by Petruchio\'s relationship with Katherine; the changing roles of Tranio, Lucentio, and Hortensio; and the true characters of Bianca and Katherine. All three of these situations help to enrich the theme. The first predicament t

Plato on Justice and InjusticePlato on Justice and Injustice Plato on Justice and Injustice In The Republic, Plato attempts to demonstrate through the character and discourse of Socrates that justice is better than justice is the good which men must strive for, regardless of whether they could be unjust and still be rewarded.
