Skin Findings of 21st Century Movie Characters

Kenji Kabashima, Atsushi Otsuka, Yoshihiro Ishida, Erica Lin
In a recent article “Dermatologic Features of Classic Movie Villains”, the authors found that dermatological findings, such as alopecia and scars, are associated with villainous characters in movies1. Their work suggested that dermatological diseases are used as convenient cues to imply the internal moral degeneracy of movie villains. There is a concern that such depiction of dermatological diseases in movies may facilitate the prejudice against dermatological diseases. However, the study is based on the “AFI's top 100 movie heroes and villains of all time” list, which contains only one movie released in the 21st century. This article is protected by copyright.
