Description

Chief Curator of Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West, Dr. Tricia Loscher

This presentation explores the representation of gender in film by looking at movie posters from The Rennard Strickland Collection of Western Film History. Join us as we consider glamorous stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford in women’s roles that range from card sharps and gunslingers to independent tomboy heroines in westerns. Presented by Dr. Tricia Loscher, Chief Curator of Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West.
