课程概述

From the beginning of motion picture history, marriage has been a topic for popular story-telling, but Hollywood struggled with a subject that presented problems an audience already knew and perhaps did not want to see as entertainment.

How the film-making business crafted tales that were simultaneously an “I do!” of happiness and an “I don’t!” of disappointment is a fascinating reflection of America’s history, changing social attitudes, shifting morals and gender roles. Hollywood found ways both to reflect reality and deflect misery as decade after decade, movies adjusted a basic formula to audience needs.
Film clips and still photographs will illustrate how films defined marriage in the movies, identified a core seven problems, and varied its three narrative components — a couple, their problems, their situation — from decade to decade from the silent to the modern era.
