« back to classes page
CourseGraphic For this edition of the Classic Crime Cinema series, we will return to the film noir era of the 1940s and 1950s and watch those dark, menacing movies in black and white that we have not previously viewed. We will be viewing films of great directors such as Fred Zinneman, Orson Welles, Elia Kazan and Michael Curtiz. Such acclaimed films as Scarlet Street; Sorry, Wrong Number; The Blue Dahlia; The Third Man and The Breaking Point will be presented. Some of the finest actors of the period will star in the films:  Edward G. Robinson, Tyrone Power, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan, John Garfield to name a few. Study group discussion will follow each movie. Prior to each class, members will be emailed articles about the film as well as any social or political commentary written about it. Come and join us for another cinematic trip into the film noir underworld.
