Yes, I know, movies arent made in Hollywood any more, or not to the same degree as they were in the “good old days” at least. Besides which, so much of the stuff nowadays is done by computer graphics, and special effects, that it wouldnt feel the same as it did for Harlow, Gable, Loy, Powell and others back in the 30’s if I made one now, anyway. But yes, all the same, the chance to tread in Jean’s footsteps would be heaven.
I must admit, as a none too avid watcher of modern movies, until April, I had no idea how male dominated the whole movie industry is. No, it doesnt surprise me really, but its disappointing all the same. Ah yes, that last evening of my holiday in Hollywood, I sold my talents to Hollywood. Alright, fine, I didnt, but I was privileged to meet a good gathering of people who work under the banner of ‘Women In Media’, to arrange opportunities for those seeking work in the industry, and to provide an entertaining evening once a month. And yes, I went up, mentioned my writing skills, mentioned that I could work well as a Harlow lookalike, then left it to the professionals to do their piece. I’m glad to say that I met some wonderful people (not only women) that night, and if I do get back in October, hopefully I can meet at least some of them again.
One wonderful gentleman either wanted to meet up with for coffee, or maybe it was lunch? I cant remember, it was over 3 months ago, and I am blonde, so…? But I’m told, jokingly I trust, that actually having that meet 6 months later wouldnt be that extraordinary! I’m only hoping one of the group leaders of Women In Media know who it was, or maybe he will shout out himself, who knows?
Anyway, in the last few days, they’ve started a new group on Twitter, and Facebook, called WomenOccupyHollywood. Yes, no gaps, probably because on Twitter, you need every character you can get! They are also on Facebook too, under the same name, go search them out.
Yes, we might all be termed feminists, but only in the true sense, that we want the chance of equality, not superiority. Alright, there might be some who’d like us to go all Dominatrix on them, but anyway… Just to say that whether I work in Hollywood as an actress, a screen writer, or anything else, I dont expect things to be biased in my favour, I just want a fair chance, and women arent getting that in Hollywood at present.
OK, fine, I might have enjoyed it if they had been a Femme Domme society, that brainwashed me into being a man hating lesbian, but they were nothing of the sort. As I say, all types, men very welcome too, and I had a wonderful time. But yes, if anyone in charge in Hollywood should read this, just give women the chance we deserve!
The video? Pretty much what this will hopefully lead to women doing. Just audio tonight, as it wasnt a Dire Straits single
Oh, and lastly, for the last time, given its only got 3 days to go, my fundraising campaign, to help pay for my forthcoming name change. If you have a few pounds, dollars, or euros to spare, please consider me. Yes, I know, you’ll have to calculate the money in sterling, I could only set it up for 1 currency.
