9 to 5 (Colin Higgins, 1980)

Presented by Ellen McCallum

Pour yourself a cup of ambition and revel in the madcap workplace comedy 9 to 5. This 1980 film crested the second wave of feminism, as the decade 1970-1980 saw the the largest ever increase in women’s participation in the workforce, according to the US Census bureau. Ever attuned to the latest trends, Hollywood saw opportunity in the entertaining side of the very real obstacles women faced during this time. Gain new and creative insights into how to get ahead in the corporate world! Starring the incomparable combination of Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Detroit native Lily Tomlin.

Dor (Nagesh Kukunoor, 2006)

But nighttime is when Mike really gets to display his many talents: He’s the hot headliner in an all-male revue. Mike sees potential in a 19-year-old he dubs the Kid (Alex Pettyfer), takes the teen under his wing and instructs him in the tricks of the trade. However, Mike learns there’s a downside to the stripper lifestyle when it threatens his romance with the Kid’s sister.
