In 1936 she returned back to the US to star in Ziegfeld Follies, despite the fact that she was a huge celebrity in Europe, American crowds hated the idea of a black woman with so much limelight, newspaper reviews were just as cruel as the audience(The New York Times called her a “Negro wench”), Josephine returned to Europe displeased with the outrageous act.

This claim, however, is under debate. While her movies do have a ‘Bigelow’ feel to them, she lacks the large body of work that is essential for an auteur. It is clear that she takes artistic command of most of her work, however, she has yet to create enough films to fully solidify this claim.

From her own experience in the film industry, she would understand how the "glamor" of it would attract Doris, and von Trotta would no doubt admire Doris 's determination to make it into the industry. If von Trotta were to make a movie adaptation of Keun 's novel, she would focus on how Doris is the "artificial silk" girl of the title. Much like artificial silk, Doris herself is easily "ruined," in the eyes of others, is always trying to look like something she is not, but is reliable when treated right.

The goal of this essay is to evaluate Odysseus’s conduct with the nymphs, the sirens, and his wife, Penelope. The role of women in the Odyssey is paramount and very well represented. In fact, there are more female characters in the Odyssey than a typical Hollywood movie would ever have. I personally do not believe that Odysseus was some kind of a woman-hating monster who used women to get what he wanted in life instead his mission in life was to get home to Penelope his wife and son Telemachus but was forced into some very difficult situations and circumstances along the way.

She was presented with an amazing opportunity to tour with one of the biggest names in music and it was erased in the blink of an eye.
