Jews in Cinema

Mondays 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM Starting August 5 (Eight Weeks)

Cinema is an industry started and dominated by creative and artistic Jews. How did it all begin? Who were the pioneers? It would not suprise anyone that the first talking movie was Jewish in theme: a cantor's son who wants to go into show business. Al Jolson and a whole cadre of Jewish actors, many who changed their names, went on to great fame. The Jewish impact on the cinema is still present in our day. This course will explore the fascinating history of cinema. Instructor: Marden Paru; $70.
