GRMN 2302 - Nazis on Screen: Hollywood, War, Propaganda Course uri icon



  • Explores representations of Nazism in Hollywood films from the early 1940s until today. How does the film image of the Nazi change from World War II through the Cold War era and beyond? From Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" to "Star Wars" and Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds," this course focuses on how representations of Nazism and fascism informed American self-conceptions and strengthened the belief and trust in democratic institutions. Taught in English.
