> 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?
