This class will focus on several of the classic gangster movies that the Warner Brothers studio produced from 1930 until 1939. Many of the stars of these films will be familiar to movie fans: Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, George Raft, to name a few. These films can be considered a precursor to the film noir movement.
