The "foreign" influence on 1930s Hollywood comes to Coe College for the penultimate Thursday Forum lecture series of the academic year.

The April forum will explore the work of three influential film stylists who brought a distinctly European sensibility to American moviemaking during Hollywood’s “golden age.”

Short sequences from the work of these directors will be screened by Theatre Arts Professor Steven Marc Weiss during in-class discussions to help assess their contributions to the development of Hollywood cinema as an art form. Additionally, special full-length screenings are scheduled on Saturday afternoons in April.

Thursday Forum lectures are held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus. Each session begins with coffee and pastries from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. Each series concludes with a luncheon on the final Thursday.

The courses are open to all adults and registration is on-site. The cost is $10 per week or $30 for a four-week course. Gift certificates are available. For more information about the Coe College Thursday Forum lecture series, call (319) 399-8619.
