Classics of Film Noir


Course description

What is film noir and why are we still fascinated by it? You will view clips from 6 classic film noir films from the key era of 1944 to 1958, starting with “Double Indemnity”, “The Killers”, “Gilda”, “The Big Sleep”, “Out of the Past”, and ending with Orson Welles' film, "The Touch of Evil," all considered key films of the classic period. 

The course will provide an opportunity to analyze and discuss elements that make up film noir, and discover how a brief period of mostly B-movies—derided at the time by American movie critics—became one of the most influential movements in film history.
