Novels in the Movies

GENINT 731.343

Osher (50+). In this course we screen and discuss full-length movies based on novels.


About this course:

In this course, we screen full-length movies that were made from novels. Our discussion highlights what the movies add to the original works. Although the relevant novels are discussed, reading those novels is not required, though doing so would certainly add to the enjoyment and give a greater perspective to viewing the movies. Film is of course its own read and our emphasis will be on that. “Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.”
