British History in the Movies (C/S217)In this course, British History as depicted in the cinema will be discussed in a fun and upbeat manner. Learn how the movies have brought the history of the U.K. to life for audiences for generations. Discover what has been accurate and what has been exaggerated in an examination of such films as "Henry V" "The Lion in Winter" "Fire Over England," "Anne of the Thousand Days," "Mrs. Brown" "Mrs. Miniver," and "Waterloo Bridge." Other topics discussed will be identifying the viewing population, black and white to color film, morals, music, religion, culture, finance, and fashion and how the history of British film continues to fascinate with movies like "The King's Speech" and "The Iron Lady."
