The Politics Of Glamour

Rarely are the off-screen lives of actors examined for evidence of deep thinking or good citizenship. Still more rarely do the internal workings of labor unions attract public scrutiny. Nevertheless, as David Prindle shows in his examination of democracy in the Screen Actors Guild, this actors’ union has for over 50 years been an arena for idealistic, yet intense and hardboiled political maneuvering. In The Politics of Glamour, readers become aware of the seriousness and political commitment displayed by people whom the general public has generally admired more for their artistic skills. After reading this account of politics among America’s screen royalty, no one could wonder about where Ronald Reagan, a former SAG president, received his political training. Besides analyzing the politics of SAG, however, the author follows a good story wherever it leads. The reader can expect to learn something about the political economy of Hollywood and the American labor movement, the value of celebrity within the acting community, the impact of technological change, and even a bit of gossip.

How do we understand glamour? Has it empowered women or turned them into objects? Once associated with modernity and the cutting edge, is it entirely bound up with nostalgia and tradition? This unique and fascinating book tells the story of glamour. It explores the changing meanings of the word, its relationship to femininity and fashion, and its place in twentieth century social history. Using a rich variety of sources - from women's magazines and film to social surveys and life histories - Carol Dyhouse examines with wit and insight the history and meaning of costume, cosmetics, perfume and fur. Dyhouse disentangles some of the arguments surrounding femininity, appearance and power, directly addressing feminist concerns. The book explores historical contexts in which glamour served as an expression of desire in women and an assertion of entitlement to the pleasures of affluence, finally arguing that glamour can't simply be dismissed as oppressive, or as male fantasy, but can carry celebratory meanings for women.

Supreme Glamour builds a complete picture of the charm and sophistication of The Supremes. With the assistance of her close personal friend Mark Bego, founding member Mary Wilson tells the complete story of the band, both on- and off-stage, from their beginnings as The Primettes in June 1959 to their 1964 breakthrough Motown hit, 'Where Did Our Love Go', and from the departure of Diana Ross to the group's comeback in the mid-1970s. Bego's insightful narrative text is packed with personal ancedotes and reflections from Mary herself, and accompanied by rare archive photography and ephemera, much of which is taken from Mary's personal collection. As Motown's leading 1960s act, The Supremes have always been synonymous with glamorous, elegant co-ordinated costumes. Supreme Glamour complements and extends their inspiring story by interleaving text sections with the cream of Mary Wilson's unparalleled collection of Supremes outfits, showcasing thirty-five of the most eye-catching ensembles, painstakingly re-assembled and photographed on the Grammy museum stage. Detailed captions accompany each photograph, providing all the key information about the design, the fabric, the embellishments, and the occasion on which each was first worn. Contemporary photos of The Supremes wearing the outfits bring the costumes to life.
