I recently read an article that contained a quote from someone in the movie industry about how it isn't currently worthwhile, or a priority, to make movies for a female audience/from a female perspective/ something along those lines. I have tried to find the associated article, but searching "movie industry women sexism" isn't very successful. I think I may have read the article at Jezebel. I may have even found it here. But I totally can't find it now. Help!

I am trying to remember the name of a Holllywood movie from forties or fifties about an actor who could not get out of the part that he was playing on the stage. I think the star was a well known actor and he may have won an oscar
