Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite
This course concentrates on the Hollywood cinema from 1929 to 1945, a period that deals with the concept of 'the studio system' which functioned to cut production cost while mass producing films.

Emphasis will be placed on the significance of talent and creativity to the studio product. The period covered includes the impact the Great Depression and World War II made on America and the Hollywood cinema. Course credit exclusions: AP/COMN 2840 9.00 (Prior to Fall 2014).
