FILM 3392 American Film History III: Post-Classical Period (Spring: 3 )
After the court-mandated demise of the old studio system beginning in 1948, the industry entered a period of independent production, media conglomerates and television production. A survey of historiographical methods addresses the problems of creating a film history that accounts for these on-going changes in the industry. The films of Scorsese, Coppola, Allen, Altman and Kazan illustrate the response of the post-studio generation to the new realities of Hollywood and its audience.
