    Film Noir Analysis

    In Chinatown, she is the widow of a murdered city official with a secret she is keeping from the rest of the word. In The Maltese Falcon, perhaps the most widely known detective film noir, she is the woman at the heart of a missing person’s case that keeps the audience guessing through the entire running time. As defined by the website Film Noir Studies, “she refuses to play the role of devoted wife and loving mother that mainstream society prescribes for women. She finds marriage to be confining, loveless, sexless, and dull, and she uses all of her cunning and sexual attractiveness to gain her independence” (Bayer.) This in itself may be part of the reason why we don’t see her as the hero of film noir. She is a character that contains traits that are traditionally rejected in women. Even with her all-around dynamism, she is often seen just as the sidekick to the detective or his one-dimensional…

    Clara was first known for founding the American Red Cross. She was also the first woman to work for the US Patent Office, as well as being the first woman to receive the same income as her male coworkers. However, when the war came around Clara stepped away from her position to tend to wounded soldiers. Clara declined any salary or pay whatsoever for tending to the sick and injured soldiers of the war. Gale, Cengage Learning informs us that, “Previously, it was unprecedented for women to be on the front-line, but Barton eventually became so trusted that she worked exclusively on battlefields for much of her career.” Mrs. Clara Barton soon became known as the “Angel of the Battlefield” and was eventually made Superintendent of the Union nurses. Barton witnessed sixteen different battle fields and so inclined her to encourage the United States to adopt the Red Cross model she has seen when working for the US Patent Office. And ultimately, she pushed it far enough that they passed the patent for American Red Cross because of Clara…
