Monkees quote 37

When Vanessa’s interest in Davy keeps her out late the night before her history final, her mother advises, “Haven’t you been spending too much time with that boy?  When you should have been studying.” Only 42% of female high school graduates attended college in 1966. Vanessa’s mother exhibits feminist ideology in prioritizing education over husband-seeking, which would require the opposite – spending more time with a boy than with her studies.

More On Women and Adapting The Godfather from A History of the Art of Adaptation  

 

Transcript:

But what is really interesting about her storyline is, they move her to Las Vegas when they are going to start getting embedded in Vegas and when they want to run a casino they need someone whose name is on the liquor license who doesn’t have a criminal past. So she becomes that person for them at the casino. So she moves up in management as a woman in the 60s and early 70’s who’s doing this high-level job which shocks everybody. And she’s lonely because she misses Sonny. So along the way she falls in love with Jules Segal, who’s a Jewish doctor who used to work in New York but got busted by the cops for providing abortions — this is before Roe vs. Wade, so it’s illegal — so Michael Corleone saves him form his legal entanglement by moving him to Vegas, making him the doctor at the casino to take care of rich women who have problems they come to Vegas to take care of that we don’t discuss.

About this talk

Dr. Rosanne Welch (RTVF) speaks on the craft of history of film adaptations from the controversy of the silent film Birth of a Nation (protested by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1915) to Breakfast at Tiffany’s (to which author Truman Capote famously said, “The only thing left from the book is the title”) to The Godfather . Naturally, the behemoth in adaptation – Harry Potter (which depended on the relationship created by adapter Steve Kloves and author J.K. Rowling) will be discussed, as will the subject of this month’s celebration: Dune.

Women Write Now: Breaking Barriers In Film, Tv And The Web

As the landscape of storytelling on film, television and the web evolves and changes, more women are leading the charge in breaking down gender walls in the industry. Each has her own story and a perspective about the challenges that women face as writers and creators in the field.

The Writers Guild Foundation and Stage 32 are partnering on this special event, which invites writers to discuss their careers and their experiences working as a woman in the industry, from where they started and how they got their material noticed to what the future for women in media looks like and what inspires them to write every day.

Abortion and Homosexuality from 1960's TV Censorship and The Monkees with Dr. Rosanne Welch

 

“1960s TV Censorship and The Monkees” gives a brief overview of where censorship standards were in the era – and how The Monkees pushed the envelope with its mentions of the Vietnam War – and Sunset Strip riots – and even with the outrageous storytelling behind “Frodis Caper”, the episode that celebrated the saving of an alien plant that very closely resembled a marijuana plant…  

Writer Treva Silverman said the staff got away with such jokes because the network executives were just old enough not to understand any of the references.
Presented at Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting classes on Friday, August 5, 2016

Transcript:

I have Andrea Zuckerman from 90210 because when I worked on that show, I wrote the episode where — as a pregnant college student — she went to Planned Parenthood to think about it, but at the time, we knew she wasn’t going to be able to make that choice. We argued about it with the network, but then they said “No. That’s not going to happen.” And the real life actress (audience comment) No, she had the baby and lived with it — the baby. And it was because Gabrielle Carteris, the actress was actually pregnant and rather than write around the pregnancy they wanted to have it happen to her character So, this is the kind of stuff that changes with what’s allowed. Thirtysomething, which of course now I am moving into the 80’s, just to give us an overview and folks from last year recognize, the writer from thirtysometing? Winnie Holzman! She didn’t write this particular episode, but what’s interesting about it is this is the first time on television you saw two men in bed together, Post having sex. We didn’t see them have sex, but here they are. This episode was banned in several states in the South. They didn’t run it at all.

Quotes from “Why The Monkees Matter” by Dr. Rosanne Welch – 36 in a series – Treva Silverman

** Buy “Why The Monkees Matter” Today **

Quotes from  

The writers created independent female characters to interact with the young male leads of the show. Treva Silverman, one of the first female writers to work solo on a comedy staff partially accounts for the strong female voice on the show. Her presence on the writing staff is an example of the gains women made in the wake of the second wave of feminism, represented in the world of The Monkees via its female guest characters.

Women and Adapting The Godfather from A History of the Art of Adaptation

 

Transcript:

In the book, in the beginning of the movie you see Sonny on the day of his sister’s wedding and he’s banging the maid of honor up against the wall in the bathroom. That’s how we’re introduced to the character Sonny. They never really told us what was going on it went by pretty quick so little kids might not have noticed this, so they got away with that and all right, he’s married and he’s having sex with someone he’s not married with. Hmmph. And then it just drops. We never hear anything more about that story line. In truth, in the book, Lucy Mancini, who is the bridesmaid, is one of the hight level characters. She actually is still his mistress through the course of his life until he is blown up in the tool booth and then the family pays her a pension because she’s been their son’s companion, so it’s like his wife gets his legal inheritance and the family pays her money basically because she lost her second husband, if you will.
