Nancy Hartman

 

Sundays, January 29 – March 5 (six weeks)

1:30 – 4:30 pm

Film/Moderated Discussion

 

Part 1 of this course will offer six films, beginning in 1949, that were nominated for Best Picture. Films will include The Heiress, Shane, and Twelve Angry Men. Within a week of each upcoming movie, a synopsis and informational material will be furnished to students by email or regular mail. Additional information about the movies will be provided at the start of each class, and a brief discussion will be held at the conclusion of each film. When available, the movies will be shown with closed captioning.

 

NANCY HARTMAN’s insatiable appetite for vintage movies began many decades ago. It prompted her to do extensive research into many of the more prominent movies. In 2010 she was afforded an opportunity to share her love for these vintage films by showing them weekly for almost four years to Kent County Public Library patrons. Nancy looks forward to extending her knowledge of these classic films to WC-ALL members.
