Title Three Daring Daughters
Released 1948
Production Year 1948
Comments While this movie was not one of the most successful or famous of its time I believe that it offers useful insight not only into the American film industry but also the mindset of consumers of that time. By studying the characters and the plot it is easy to see where American society, and thus much of the world, was cognitively. Clearly by suggesting that these three girls are daring for seeking out their cruel biological father it is implied that at that time women were largely passive and would rarely take such forward moves as that. Beyond this the fact that it was a musical sheds light on the desires of consumers in late 1940's America. All in all I would argue that this film is worth watching for no other reason than to witness a snapshot in history and thus gain a more well rounded idea of where the film industry was in relation to where it is today.
