Why Characters Wear Stripes in Movies


For his latest video essay, writer and movie enthusiast Jack Nugent from the "Now You See It" series explores the history, significance, and meaning of stripes in classic and modern films.
"After reading Michel Pastoureau's "The Devil's Cloth: A History of Stripes," I saw an opportunity to expound upon his ideas and apply them to the movies. Once you're on the lookout for stripes, you can see just how nicely their historical significance aligns with the significance of striped characters in the movies."
