The Yellow Wallpaper
A film by Marie Ashton
1977, 14 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99119
This short dramatic film brings to life the classic Charlotte Perkins Gilman story of the same name, which has become an important addition to American literature course curricula. Set in the late 1800s, the story features Elizabeth, an aspiring writer who becomes ill and is forced by her doctor and her husband to take a "rest cure." Completely isolated, her mind creates a world inside the wallpaper in her room-a world in which a woman is trapped and unable to escape.


    "Useful and instructive...I have used this film extensively in women's studies and creative writing courses."
    Robin Becker
    Writing Program, MIT
