EPISODE 5 - STUDIO ERA
In this episode of Women Vs Hollywood, Helen O’Hara is joined by Shelley Stamp and Susan Kemp to discuss the Studio Era, which began in the early 1920s and lasted until the end of the 1940s. The studio system was designed to treat film as a factory product, and it had a huge impact on women, people of colour, and LGBTQ+ people in Hollywood.
