Niagara with Jacqueline Rose

Jacqueline Rose, University of London, examines the film Niagara, its star Marilyn Monroe, Hollywood, and what Rose terms the "loving cruelty of cinema in relation to women." Rose is welcomed to UCSB by Professor of Film and Media Studies Constance Penley. Niagara is a unique specimen of baroque Technicolor film noir, starring Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotten. The film tells the story of a pair of couples at Niagara Falls -- one honeymooning, the other disintegrating -- and explores desire, insanity, and the drive toward fatal attraction. Recorded on 10/20/2015. (#30402)
