Course Description:

The years 1935, 1944, 1959, and 1973 produced an extraordinary number of classic films. From "A Night at the Opera" to "Double Indemnity," "Ben-Hur" to "Paper Moon," the cinematic excellence from these years still reverberates today. Film historian Gary Shapiro looks at these special years and, using curated film clips and insightful analysis, details the growth of the motion picture as an art form in the 20th century.
