The Bad Seed

by William March, The Bad Seed Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Bad Seed book, The bestselling novel that inspired Mervyn LeRoy’s classic horror film about the little girl who can get away with anything—even murder. There’s something special about eight-year-old Rhoda Penmark. With her carefully plaited hair and her sweet cotton dresses, she’s the very picture of old-fashioned innocence. But when their neighborhood suffers a series of terrible accidents, her mother begins to wonder: Why do bad things seem to happen when little Rhoda is around? Originally published in 1954, William March’s final novel was an instant bestseller and National Book Award finalist before it was adapted for the stage and made into a 1956 film. The Bad Seed is an indelible portrait of an evil that wears an innocent face, one which still resonates in popular culture today. With a new foreword by Anna Holmes. Vintage Movie Classics spotlights classic films that have stood the test of time, now rediscovered through the publication of the novels on which they were based.

The Big Shocker

by Renee Kuklenski, The Big Shocker Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Big Shocker book, This thesis focuses on the 1956 film The Bad Seed and reframes its self-proclaimed identity as a shocking motion picture in the context of its advertising, the role censorship played in the film's creation, and the two versions that preceded it: the original 1954 novel by William March and Maxwell Anderson's 1956 Broadway play. In particular, I focus on child murderess Rhoda Penmark's punishments in the film--electrocution and spanking-as evidence of and as responses to midcentury regulatory pressures on the film industry. Through an investigation of censorship and the Motion Picture Production Code, I consider why the circumstances of Rhoda's death were worth showing to audiences in a time when there were explicit regulations on visual representations of violence-particularly violence against children. I argue that Rhoda's unique demise in the film is evidence of the Production Code Administration's willingness to shape and mold The Bad Seed around the Code. Due to this close relationship with the regulatory agency, this "shocking" motion picture is anything but that. As an extension of this discussion of duplicity, I highlight the aspects of Rhoda's character across the novel, play, and film that conform to midcentury expectations of cuteness and girlhood and those that defy them. Ultimately, I use The Bad Seed to explore ideas of representation and identity, both through the film's plot and character development and as these themes pertain to the film's larger identity in a cultural context.

The Bad Seed

by Lee Hayes, The Bad Seed Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Bad Seed book, Some people can make being bad seem so very good. Lee Hayes, the critically acclaimed author of Passion Marks, A Deeper Blue: Passion Marks 2, and The Messiah, returns with a delightfully wicked spin on what constitutes a “bad seed.” The wildly entertaining duo of novellas are sure to intrigue and titillate readers with their exploration of risqué themes. “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” is about a cosmetically beautiful but emotionally damaged young man who marries a wealthy older man to go from rags to riches. After beginning an illicit affair with his husband’s attorney, he decides that he would rather enjoy the amenities of limitless money minus the husband. He will stop at nothing to see his husband six feet under so that he can dance on his grave, toasting with expensive champagne. In “Crazy in Love,” a hyper-sexual seventeen-year-old high school boy develops a fatalistic crush on his reclusive high school English teacher. When the teacher rebuffs the boy’s advances, all hell breaks loose—and the upstanding teacher’s life is put on the line. Hell hath no fury…
