Backwards and in Heels

The Past, Present, and Future of Women Working in Film
Written by Alicia Malone | Narrated by Katherine Littrell
“Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.” Women have been revolutionizing the film industry since its inception. Profiles of Marilyn Monroe, Meryl Streep, Ava DuVernay, and more shed light on their rarely told accounts in this lively audiobook, which actor Elijah Wood calls “a very important part of the story of film.”

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.”—Ann Richards

Women have been instrumental in the success of American cinema since its very beginning. One of the first people to ever pick up a motion picture camera was a woman, as was the first screenwriter to win two Academy Awards, the inventor of the boom microphone, and the first person to be credited with the title film editor. Throughout the entire history of Hollywood women have been revolutionizing, innovating, and shaping how we make movies. Yet their stories are rarely shared.

This is what film reporter Alicia Malone wants to change. Backwards and in Heels

Backwards and in Heels combines research and exclusive interviews with influential women and men working in Hollywood today, such as Geena Davis, J.J. Abrams, Ava DuVernay, Octavia Spencer, America Ferrera, Paul Feig, and many more, as well as film professors, historians, and experts. Join Alicia as she champions Hollywood women of the past and present, and looks to the future with the hopes of leveling out the playing field.
