Book DescriptionWitty and brash, the fast-talking dames in film comedies of the 1930s and ?40s offered moviegoers a new, independent version of American womanhood. In this widely acclaimed book, Maria DiBattista paints vivid portraits of the grandest fast-talking dames of the era, including Katharine Hepburn, Irene Dunne, and Barbara Stanwyck, and discusses what their films had to say about men, happiness, and the power of speech.
