Night and the city; hard boiled detectives and sinister femme fatales; damaged heroes and innocent ingenues. These are some of the ingredients that make up one of the most original genres in American film history. From the early 1940s to the late 1950s these mostly low budget black and white films captured the cynicism and disillusionment of post World War II America, while at the same time introducing some of the most skilled directors and most iconic actors of the 20th century (Humphrey Bogart, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, Barbara Stanwyck, and Ava Gardner). This course will analyze some of the most well known films of this period, beginning with "Double Indemnity" and including such classics as "The Big Sleep," "The Killers," and "Out of the Past." So grab your old trenchcoat and join us for a visit to the dark side of the big city streets.

For the most part, the wives and mothers of our American Presidents have remained shadowy background figures with a few notable exceptions. Who hasn't heard of Abigail Adams, Mary Todd Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Roselyn Carter and Barbara Bush? In this class, we will learn about the lives of the mothers and wives of all the men elected president of the United States. Did their mothers shape the future presidents character and values? Did their wives further influence their political careers in a positive way? Or, did their mothers and wives have a negative impact on their lives and careers? By the end of the course, we should be able to answer these questions, or at least have some ideas about these presidential relationships.
