READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE
Osher (50+). In this course we read pulp fiction novels that have been adapted for film.
About this course:
Many of our favorite films are adapted from pulp fiction. In this course, we read four of the best ones: Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, Raymond Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely, James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Ring Twice, and Stephen King’s The Shawshank Redemption. Students are encouraged to watch the movies if possible, so we can compare the originals and the film adaptations. Virtual popcorn will be supplied.
