Think about this: As you have learned, both Dracula and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are seen as films that satisfied an emotional need in audience members of the Great Depression. According to lecture and our readings, how does each film accomplish this?
What do Melvin Matthews and Tracey Mollet think about each film and their ability to meet the emotional and psychological needs of this particular audience? Once you’ve thought through these questions answer the following prompt: Choose one scene from Dracula and one from Snow White and clarify the ways that they are similar in their presentation of ideas and symbols that appealed to the audience of the Great Depression. Be sure to cite both Matthews and Mollet in your response, and use concrete examples from each film.
