Abstract

Explores the ways in which classical Hollywood cinema used music, among other components, to encode the presence and aura of women and, in so doing, perpetuated entrenched models of female sexuality.Examples are provided from David Lean's 1945 film Brief encounter and Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca (1940).
