More Adventures In B Movies: Supernatural Film Noir  

More Adventures In B Movies: A Day of Low-Budget Supernatural Film Noir! This fascinating day-long seminar will focus on the oft-maligned and generally misunderstood Hollywood B movie. Through sheer inventiveness and resourcefulness, these unpretentious, low-budget films offer an exciting alternative to the over-produced tedium of the more respectable film fare associated with the Golden Age of Hollywood. The 3 films on display and under discussion delve into the world of film noir and the supernatural, a backdrop that provides the perfect ambience for these subversive smaller films. The films all have reasonably short running times. MIRACLES FOR SALE (1939) BUNCO SQUAD (1950) THE AMAZING MR. X (1948) Workshop schedule: 10am – 10-15 min lecture, 90min movie #1, discussion 12pm – lunch break (considering possible discussion thru lunch) 12:45pm - 10-15 min lecture, 90min movie #2, discussion 2:15 pm – 10 min break 2:25 pm - 10-15 min lecture, 90min movie #3, discussion Elliot Lavine programmed films for the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco from 1990 - 2014, including his annual "I Wake Up Dreaming" film noir film festivals which moved to the Castro in 2015. In 2010 he received the Marlon Riggs Award from the San Francisco Film Critics Circle "for his revival of rare archival titles and his role in the renewed popularity of film noir." This year he relocated to the Pacific Northwest but returns periodically to the Bay Area where he continues to offer film studies classes both for Stanford and OLLI.
