Week 5 – image research

The 1930s was an era that had the most influence from Hollywood in the fashion industry. I personally love to watch films and theatre, which it always fascinated by ideas about life and story. The paragraph had mentioned there is a time neo-Victorian clothing was needed in the costume industry, the style of the period from the rage of the 1850s to 1934 reached a peak in 1938. The film title “Little women” captured my sight the most and after doing research I found out this poster most interests me as an artist. Little Women 1933 poster.jpg

The image 

Titled with Little Women in the center of the poster, underneath a girl with blue dress cross-eyed with three other kids. In her eyes, there is anger and upset. Maybe she is angry because of the situation she is in right now, or maybe she had a fight with these people she stares with, or even she was getting abandoned and betrayed by these people she eye crossed. The atmosphere of this poster does cause my curiosity, I am wondering about why things are getting so intense in this poster. Although I can only have assumptions from the poster, however, it does tell a message of the childish we had from anger.

The film

The three sisters Margaret, Amy, and Beth, grew up guiding by their mother and having a father that went away because of serving as a minister in the troops of the Civil war. Some of the love stories are presented between their neighbors, Jo. Also, a tutor, John Brooke,  is involved and holds an important role as the wife of Margaret as well. overall it is a complicated love story between these people.
