The Female Status as Image

How Men Propose
R: Lois Weber. B: Lois Weber. D: Chester Barnett, Grace Darling, Phillips Smalley. P: Crystal Film Company. USA 1913

How Men Propose (1913) is a particularly imaginative rendition of the narrative implications of resistance to the equation between woman and image of the male look. (…) How Men Propose offers one of the most interesting forms of female ‘primitive’ narration, since in this film the woman actually responds to her status as image.”
