This paper will focus on the cultural/social/political significance of an actor in a film. Students will choose one of the following actors and their films listed, watch the film, do some brief research and write about the cultural/political/social (it doesn’t have to be all there, it can be merely one or two) impact the star and film had relevant to the film’s era. Why was the actor in this film important? What barriers did both the actor and film break? Again, this is not entirely a research paper. It is important to see your own reaction to the performance and how you see the effect of the actor/film in regard to cultural/political or social influence. As with Response 1, it is integral to see the actor in this film through your eyes! Minimum word requirement is 600 to 750 words but feel free to expand if needed. Cite all sources if you use research!
