Film Odyssey: Fighting the Good Fight- The American Films of the 1940's—taught by Mark Larson

Our ongoing film history series continues with a look at how Hollywood captured the exuberance of American life in that most challenging decade- the 1940's. Please join us as a Technicolor Carmen Miranda explodes in "Weekend in Havana," Ida Lupino falls hard for Bogart in "High Sierra," Bing Crosby teaches us a thing or two in "Going My Way," Zachary Scott struggles to survive in Jean Renoir's "The Southerner," and we watch the greatest American film from the period- "The Best Years of Our Lives." Lively discussion follows every film.
