Summary/Abstract: When the issue of the way women are represented in films came first to be talked about, there was an idea that struck those interested. Namely, throughout the entire history of film woman had a constant representation, that of being a sign. She was nothing more than a simple presence on the screen; everything man was not, thus becoming a nonidentity. More than that, women needed the help of men whatever they did, and when they did something wrong, it was, of course, the men who came to straighten things up.
