THE FATAL HOUR – HOLLYWOOD’S B-MOVE SERIES
In the 1930s the B movie became a ubiquitous part of film programmes – cheaply made and formulaic , they could be churned out in large numbers to accompany the bigger budget A pictures. Many of the most popular American B movies of the 1930s and 40s were series of films featuring a central character – from Tarzan and Sherlock Holmes to Blondie and Hopalong Cassidy. This entertaining course will showcase some of the best of these cheap and cheerful films, from familiar favourites like Charlie Chan and The Saint to forgotten gems like Torchy Blane and the Lone Wolf.
NB This course runs 2nd July – 30th July with four weeks of teaching plus a free preparatory class on 2nd July covering Zoom essentials and access to film materials. Details of how to join online will be sent after enrollment.
