Crocker, Keith LAUREL & HARDY: THE SILENT YEARS Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Clowning
This is an excellent addition to my "Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy" program which covers their sound work. In this program we examine how the classic comedy team got paired together by Producer Hal Roach, and we look at the silent short comedies produced in the late 1920's. We will watch one of their classic silent short comedies, Do Detectives Think from 1927. It was this short that solidified the classic persona they would adapt and in term would make them the most recognizable comedy teams in history. This program uses DVD.

Fiske, David Broadway Goes to War: "Soldier Shows" of World War I History,
Media- Other
During the first World War, presentations called "soldier shows" allowed theatrical producers to not only entertain the public, but provide a show of patriotism. Some of these shows were put together by individuals who served in the military (such as Sergeant Irving Berlin), though others had no military background. The shows were light entertainment, featuring skits and musical numbers, and utilized many performers who were actually in the service. Proceeds from soldier shows went to projects intended to improve the lives of those serving in the armed forces of the United States.

Crocker, Keith SPAGHETTI WESTERNS - How Europe Changed the Face of Western Cinema Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Other
This seminar explores how Italian filmmakers took an American genre of film-making and completely reshaped it giving the world a very different view of the old west. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly blurred the definition of good and evil. We will cover the work of Sergio Leone as well as explore the countless spin-offs as done by the Spanish, Germans, Mexicans and others. A delicious selection of DVD clips punctuate the footage used to draw examples. The casual cinema viewer will broaden their outlook and appreciate other film genres via this presentation. *NOTE* Due to the nature of the subject matter, I do insist this seminar be classified for "Adults". Westerns by nature can be violent, so don't aim this program at children or pre-teens. It is meant for "Adults". Thank you!
