From Post WWII until the early 1960s there emerged a style of film designated film noir, or "black film." It was an apt description of films that emerged from German Expressionism through the eyes of émigrés from Hitler's Germany and into the studio system of American film production. It created its own stars and boosted the power of existing stars including Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart, Alan Ladd, Barbara Stanwyck, Dan Dureya, Dick Powell, and many others. From private eyes to psychotic killers, they flash on the screen and we'll follow them through their dark deeds and poisoned minds. Begins second week of classes.
