University Press of Mississippi

The book concludes with a production history and analysis of Julia (1977), arguably Zinnemann's most complex “Resistance” film and one of the most important films about women ever made. The chapter begins with an analysis of Lillian Hellman's notorious memoir, Alvin Sargent's development of a unique film about female antifascist resistance, Zinnemann's vision of the film's attitude toward history within the emerging debates about postmodernism, feminism, resistannce, and historiography, and contemporary political resisters Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave's impact in a seminal film released in Hollywood's advertised “Year of the Woman.”

Keywords:   Julia (1977), Jane Fonda, Vanessa Redgrave, Lillian Hellman, Women's history
