In Feminine Iconology Revisted Part One, MostlyFilm brought you the icons of the silver screen from the Golden Age: one writer, one actress, one decade. In Part Two we moved through Hollywood’s 1970s renaissance to the present day.
How times have changed! Times have changed – right? This post covers the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s (and the 2000s – so fresh we did them twice!)
The 101st International Women’s Day took place in March 2012. To mark that hugely important milestone, MostlyFilm dedicated two days to some of the most iconic, glorious females in Hollywood. One writer, one actress, one decade. You’ll have to imagine that a single person can represent an entire gender for an entire ten year span.

Yes folks, this isn’t any cheap X-rated movie or any 5th rate porno play, this is the show you want! Lady Divine’s cavalcade of perversions, the sleaziest show on earth! Not actors, not paid impostors, but real actual filth who have been carefully screened in order to present to you the most flagrant violation of natural law known to man!
