Comedy Icons Bob Hope and Jack Benny

With Producer Writer and Director Sal St. George

 

Comic Legends Jack Benny and Bob Hope were an integral part of the 20th Century’s entertainment landscape. While both Benny and Hope were acknowledged as the two leading masters of comedic timing, they approached their artistry from opposite directions.  Benny excelled in delivering his material with ease; he could do more with a gesture than most comedians could do with an entire monologue. Hope, on the other hand, had a quick wit and self-deprecating humor that made him America’s most celebrated and decorated comedian of our time.

 

Opposite styles with one common result: they were two very funny men! Relive their lives and their humor in this entertaining examination of two of America’s most beloved Comedy Icons.

 

Continuing Education programs are free of charge and open to all who wish to attend. 

Light refreshments and coffee/tea will be served. 

 

R.S.V.P. is always appreciated to templeoffice@tbeli.org or (631) 421-5835, Ext. 200.

Night and the Cities:  The Suspense-Driven World of Film Noir

With Film Historia, Author and Lecturer Max Alvarez

 

Max Alvarez investigates the suspense-filled world of film noir, the dark, brooding genre of Hollywood crime thrillers made during the 1940s and 1950s. Usually filmed in black-and-white, these tough melodramas were populated with dysfunctional anti-heroes and shady characters with questionable pasts and dark secrets. These dramas of crime and deception produced during WWII, the Cold War, and the Hollywood Blacklisting, often offered a commentary on contemporary events as a reflection on the challenging lives of the common people.

 

Explore this dark world of crime with ominous titles and portrayed in high contrast as Alvarez narrates the journey into the forbidding geography of film noir.  He shows clips from some of the classics of the genre, selected from among the following:  Sorry, Wrong Number; The Lady From Shanghai, Double Indemnity; Witness To Murder; and A Kiss Before Dying.      

 

Continuing Education programs are free of charge and open to all who wish to attend. 

Light refreshments and coffee/tea will be served.
