October 23: The Movies Go to War

Bill Iddings is the most respected movie critic, scholar, and film history instructor in Western Michigan. He also has appeared on stage and screen himself, as well as having written scripts. From the time film was invented, movies always have played a major role during wars, especially in the nations involved in those conflicts. Bill will be showing film clips to illustrate the impact of movies upon society and the real truth during times of war, and we will be learning much unexpected information from his presentation.
