This paper focuses on the Gothic romance film of the 1940s, its place within the Gothic genre and the relationship between its textual variations and the historical situation of American women. For although the Gothic mode has always permitted the articulation of feminine fear, anger, and distrust of the patriarchal order, the films of the war and post-war period place an unusual emphasis on the affirmation of feminine perception, interpretation, and lived experience.
