I'm new to the list and have enjoyed reading people's postings.  I'm currently involved in a project trying to trace the figure of the shoujo in film after World War II.  Does anybody have suggestions?  I've got Misora Hibari films in the 1950s (orphan), other of her films in the 1960s (country girl), and a slew of films for the late 1980s and 1990s (teenage prostitute, biker girl, shopper).  I have a big gap of the 1970s, and am looking for any films which may depict shoujo as kawaii or cute.  Manga and anime of the period depict shoujo with increasingly rounded features, and bigger and bigger eyes.  What about film?
