The 1940s was an interesting time in American cinema that created a very specific flavour of movies. During WWII and its aftermath, characters became tougher and more troubled, shrouded in noir and psychological themes of madness that shaped gender stereotypes and a new breed of star. This course will provide a focus on single personalities of the era, exploring works that were often a (dark) reflection of who these movie stars were. Those looked at will be: Gregory Peck, Lana Turner, Robert Mitchum, Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, Olivia de Havilland, Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino and Glenn Ford. Films discussed will include: Remember the Night (1940), Duel in the Sun (1944), The Killers (1946), Gilda (1946), The Dark Mirror (1946), Out of the Past (1947), The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946), In a Lonely Place (1950), On Dangerous Ground (1951). 

Suitable for those who attended last year’s Old Hollywood course, and those who didn’t!
