“The classical Hollywood film present psychologically defined individuals who struggle to solve a clear-cut problem or to attain specific goals. In the course of this struggle, the characters enter into conflict with others or with external circumstances. The story ends with a decisive victory or defeat, a resolution of the problem and a clear achievement or nonachievement of the goals” (Bordwell 1985). The Maltese Falcon follows this perfectly. At the beginning, Mrs. Wonderly/ Bridget O’Shaughnessy is searching for her sister, but really is looking for the falcon, this is the problem and she is trying to attain a specific goal.
It does so by making the setting the roaring 20’s because that time period is full of moral ambiguity.

The idea of women having rights is inherently good, but to some was an example of their rights becoming less powerful and making this idea evil. Giving the era itself moral ambiguity and creating an environment where Gatsby and other characters feel obligated to throw parties where drinking is encouraged, have a man commit adultery, the idea of divorce, and dishonesty. Overall, moral ambiguity plays a large role in the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Holmes was great at scanning a room and figuring out the crime scene, but Marlowe faces crimes with violence and pain. Chandler located many of his novels in Los Angeles, because it portrayed the worst qualities of the American society during his time.

The "need for ritual is a way to identify that a serial killer is at work; it sets him from other murderers"(Dolan 51). Serial Killers and their actions of killing others may easily become an “addiction” and “way of life” (Dolan 1).

They pretend that their radical mindsets are acceptable, even though it comes from the past. In addition to these individuals, racist, sexist and homophobic individuals also have this mindset, which causes the need for groups like Black Lives Matter and Feminist groups.

Because of these features, the author states that the men from everywhere heavily seek after her, which supports the idea that the feature of deceitfulness was appealing to the author. In “Against Women”, this feature is viewed as detestable. The Latin women are a shame to the author because of their deceitfulness. He believes that when a woman is deceitful or beguiling, she becomes unbearable or inhuman. In fact, he asserts that as a result of all the treatments women were using to deceive it was hard to tell whether the woman was “a human face , or an ulcer” (Fiero 162).
In William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the female characters' desire to question the law of Athens and select their own husbands drives most of the conflict in the play. In a way, Hermia, Helena, and Titania are the protagonists of the play because each of their desires are being thwarted by the patriarchal structure of the society in which they live. The way the women try to overcome such hurdles does not sit well with the men. Accordingly, the men get on edge when their patriarchy is disrupted, so they make strict laws to try and keep the women under their control. The men of Athens feel threatened when women show agency because their whole patriarchal system depends on female complacency.
Victims. Time and time again women have been victims of misogyny, commodification, and social obligation. Women are forced to squeeze into an idealistic mold and confrom to society’s standards.

These husbands seem to have no regard for the opinion of their wives; as if being male brings superiority.
