Does art reflect life? In movies, yes. Because more than any other art form, films have been a mirror held up to society's porous face.

Which is strongest the reality out of which the illusion is created, the celluloid illusion itself, or the need for illusion? Do we hold the mirror up and dive in? And if we do, what are the consequences?
Movies have always been a form of popular culture that altered the way women looked at the world and reflected how men intend to keep it.
Women's films [in the fiftiesl became "howto's" on catching and keeping a man. Veneer. Appearance. Sex Appeal. Hollywood descended into mammary madness.
Studios, purporting to ease the anguish of Depression reality, transformed movies into the poIitics of fantasy, the great black-and-white opiate of the masses.
