Films: Teen Movies: Rebels, Rock, Beaches and Angst  

The teen movie isn't easily defined. The term is most closely associated with John Hughes' high school-based movies of the 1980s. Those films became the template for all films that followed, but teens can also be used in satires and even in adaptations of classic literature. This class will look back at anti-drug exploitations of the 1930s, the rock 'n' roll movies of 1950s, the beach movies of 1960s, the sex and raunchy comedies of the 1970s and 1980s, and the ongoing transformation of the teen film as well as the recent cultural re-evaluation of John Hughes.
