Strong women on the set
»I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.«
Strong female characters in films of the 1960s and 70s, embodied by actresses such as Sophia Loren, Ursula Andress, Claudia Cardinale, Jane Fonda or Liza Minelli, stand for the break with dusty role models and the traditional social order of the post-war period in the world of film.
Whether as the science-fiction heroine »Barbarella« in space, dangerous secret agent »Modesty Blaise«, heavily armed like Jeanne Moreau and Brigitte Bardot in »Viva Maria!« or through tremendous assertiveness like Liz Taylor – strong, independent women are claiming their place on the world's screens.
OstLicht Shop presents a selection of vintage set photographs of female film stars of the 1960s and 70s during the shootings of films like »La decima vittima« (1965) or »Carbaret« (1972).
