Film Classics
Why do some films seem so much better than others and maintain a reputation for what seems forever? Why do these films have an impact on the development of the cinema while others drop quickly into oblivion? In other words, why are some films “classics” and what do we mean by the term “classic” to begin with? Let’s take a look at the following film classics and respond to those questions: Grand illusion (France, 1937); The African Queen (USA, 1951); Touch of Evil (USA, 1958); Late Spring (Japan, 1949); Chinatown (USA, 1974); and Groundhog Day (USA, 1993). Ira Konigsberg is Professor Emeritus of Film at the University of Michigan. CLASS ON OCTOBER 7, OCTOBER 14, OCTOBER 21, OCTOBER 30, NOVEMBER 4, NOVEMBER 11 Cost does not include parking.
