1940’s Classic Movies and The Business of Life is a film study guide designed for high school and college students as well as young adults. The seven classic films in this study guide show us what life can be like when it is less fragmented and hurried. By the assessment of many critics and fans, this decade was the greatest in Hollywood history.
From Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt (1943) to John Huston’s Key Largo (1948), we are privileged to glimpse the height of 1940’s cinema. This was the decade of World War II and it’s aftermath. The films that came out of Hollywood in this period often took a deeper look into the mysteries of the human soul, human nature, and the importance of community.
