Women in Film
Not sure if this has already made the rounds, but this video is a beautiful montage of women in film:

It's actually really lovely. My eyes could not deal with the constant changes tho. I tend to get migraines with flickers etc so maybe I am just too sensitive to the alternations but they ARE very beautifully done and are such a tribute. I was certainly reminded of some faces I've not seen for a long time. I only got half way through tho.

Thanks for offering this

that was really neat! I wish it went a little slower though - didn't have enough time to identify everyone Did you see Katherine Hepburn in there ? Seems like she had to be but if so I missed her (ran it 2x). Thanks for posting it - I am in awe of what some people can do on the computer!

that's cool and yet a little creepy (those kinds of things have always creeped me out a little)... they needed to stay a little longer on each picture to give me time to see who i was looking at

I could name more of the older stars than the newer ones. Mainly because I spent most of my time watching TCM!!

dreamsherl...Excellent point. I must say here, there WAS an issue when a woman with very pale skin was NOT known to be Indigenous and boy did she object to that lack of realisation. I'm not sure how one could have really known. But good point of yours and it shows a cultural bias for sure. Who would you have wanted to see included?

Rita Hayworth was Puerto Rican. I didn't watch it when I saw the reply saying regarding how the images were, i thought it would cause a migrane. if she was on there, then there was a woman of color. no one ever knows that she was Puerto Rican but she was.
