    I started this video in the days that followed November 8th 2016. Despite being Australian, the events of that day overwhelmed me with both anger and sadness on behalf of my gender. Instead of sitting around and brooding about the state of the world, I decided to pour all of my feelings into Sony Vegas and make a video...this video. Obviously several months have past- but my feelings remain the same. So this is my girl power tribute (with an Old Hollywood twist).

    Reasons for making this video aside, it's basically just a compilation of some of my favourite female performances from the Old Hollywood era (and I highly recommend all the films contained within this video). While not every character represented in this video is a pillar of strength, I still consider this a girl power tribute because all of the performances (regardless of the character being portrayed) are incredibly powerful and represent the very best Old Hollywood had to offer.

    A few of my favorite performances missed out (only because I had to try and match to lyrics as well as represent my favourite performances, which was incredibly difficult)- a few of the notable omissions were Vivien Leigh in "A Streetcar Named Desire", Katharine Hepburn in "Morning Glory" and "The Philadelphia Story", Greta Garbo in "Camille", Olivia de Havilland in "The Snake Pit", Judy Holliday in "Born Yesterday", Irene Dunne in "Penny Serenade" and "Theodora Goes Wild", Audrey Hepburn in "Sabrina", Shirley MacLaine in "The Children's Hour", Judy Garland in "A Child is Waiting" and Bette Davis in "Dark Victory" and "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane". There are more I'd love to mention but I'll stop now before I get carried away (too late!). Show less
