Rock Goes to the Movies  

When Blackboard Jungle hit movie theaters in 1955, teenagers showed up in droves just to dance in the aisles to Bill Haley’s "Rock Around the Clock." Hollywood recognized right away that there was money to be made from putting rock music into motion pictures. Whether the story is about gangsters, lovers, coming-of-age or time travel, the right songs can jolt an ordinary flick into something special. in this class, you’ll learn fascinating backstories about these movies and the actors and directors who starred in and created them. You'll also watch scenes from the films and hear great music from their soundtracks. (Term 1 Class)
