Five Came Back: Hollywood and World War II
Tuesdays, June 9 - July 14
9:30 - 11:45 a.m.
Humana Guidance Center
While the American public and its politicians debated about out participation in another European war in 1940, Hollywood moviemakers were being pressured to release films in support of a conflict that seemed unwelcome, but inevitable. Five of Tinseltown's most honored directors-- Frank Capra, John Ford, George Stevens, William Wyler, and John Huston-- all stepped forward to participate in the war effort. In this Study Group, we'll read about, see clips of, and discuss both feature and documentary films that they directed either before, during, or after World War II. Participants should read Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and The Second World War by Mark Harris. This book is available new or used in paperback or in electronic formats or through local libraries.
$45 - facilitated by Randy Wilson and Carol May, who are both OLLI Study Group facilitators and members of the OLLI Study Group and Cinema committees
