Best Years: Going to the Movies, 1945-1946

 

Catherine Clepper

Catherine Clepper is a doctoral candidate in the Screen Cultures program at Northwestern University.  She is currently in the early stages of researching her dissertation project on mid-century multisensory cinematic gimmicks.  (Yes, Smell-O-Vision and Sensurround. See also, William Castle.)  She loves being on fellowship.

Catherine’s favorite 1945-1946 film is easily John Brahm’s mind-blowing psychodrama The Locket (1946).  See it for yourself if you haven’t already.
