A trio of major American detective novels were made into classic 1940's films by three of our greatest filmmakers. One week will be a lively discussion of the literary value of the book, the next will be a screening of the film, followed by a study of how the filmmaker transforms the book’s ideas and characters into cinema. Techniques will be discussed on how to better appreciate the films we love and the works they are based upon. Clips from “making of” documentaries will also be shown, featuring directors, stars and film experts.

Books and films: D. Hammett, The Maltese Falcon, film directed by J. Huston (1941); V. Caspary, Laura, film directed by Otto Preminger (1944); R. Chandler, The Big Sleep, film directed by Howard Hawks (1946).
