Module code


This module examines the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood Cinema (1920-1960), looking at the role of the studio system and the impact of relevant social, political and historical contexts on a wide range of Hollywood genres. From screwball comedy and the western to crime, war films and science-fiction, this module will explore a rich and lively period of film-making and the development of an apparently seamless, unambiguous cinematic narrative (the Hollywood style). You will study some of the very best films ever to emerge from Hollywood on this module.
