Classmate Tiffany’s Post:
The scene I choose from the movie ranging bull is the scene at 25:22. The reason I choose this scene is because it is where the two main protagonists are meeting and I liked the scene and how I can analyze it more. In the scene we can see, that Jake meeting Vickie. The scenes shot is interesting because it kinda hints at a barrier behind the two. Jake is married and Vickie is a minor who seems to be classier than Jake is, it can hint at the wealth and or societal gap between both parties. The reason I found the shot and camera angle to be an editing style is because it showcases two different cameras having to be possibly used. One camera is outside on the street and one is on the inside in the swimming pool area. The editing as well can manipulate the sound of the scene, In some parts you could hear what was being said but in some parts you could not, which I think adds to the suspense and hesitancy of the scene, especially on Vickies part. As the scene went on, the jump cuts and such only added to the movie and can give the viewers a sense of their own interpretation on how to see where the movie will go. For example, when Vickie mentions that she likes Jack’s car, she is then seen in the front passenger seat riding down New York with him. That scene as well can be interpreted as, there is a line down the middle in the car on the windshield, it can be a call back to the couples age gap and how they come from different societal points in the film. These elements identify as what Martin Scorsese’s style is to do some jump cuts and the slow motions and freeze frames which we can see later on in the film.

However, the shot does show the viewer that phyllis is the one with the power.

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY!
Purpose
Our discussion for this Module focuses on auteurism, the idea that a single person (or group) has authorship over the production of a film. In Classic Hollywood, auteurism is almost exclusively associated with male directors. We turn our attention to the only female director working in 1950s Hollywood: Ida Lupino. What distinguishes her authorial style?

Ethan’s Post: The scene I chose to analyze happens at 31:17 in the film. I chose this scene because it stands out from many of the other scenes. This scene is taken from a low angle whereas many of the scenes in the movie are from chest height or head height. This scene is also significant in terms of the story because Phyllis says that she would want to remain as strangers to Harrison. This was his cue to leave her, but he continues to pursue her and completely changes his life for the worse because of his actions after this scene. The dialogue in this scene is more significant than the actual shot. However, the shot does show the viewer that Phyllis is the one with the power. She looks down on Harrison and foreshadows that she will have some sort of control over him.
Response Post EXAMPLE: Hey Tiffany,
I agree with you that the introduction to the movie was a bit jarring at first. The beginning of the movie is certainly light-hearted in terms of the story and music. The scene itself is also very bright, which you pointed out. This is appropriate since the wife is very hopeful that they will get their child from Mr. Jordan. The scene you chose is very interesting to watch again after knowing that the husband has another family. By rewatching this scene, you can really see that Harrison looks a bit nervous like he is hiding something.
In The Bigamist, I noticed that Lupino chooses to change camera angles very frequently within scenes. When there are scenes with two people talking, the camera cuts between both people’s faces often. Shots in the movie also tend to be at either chest height or head height. The characters are very often centered on the screen and take up a large portion of the screen space. A trope I see repeated throughout the film is how the main character, Harrison, consistently picks the wrong choices and digs himself into a deeper hole with each choice he makes.
I think what designates a filmmaker as an auteur is consistency with their shots. If someone can watch a movie and pick out the patterns the scenes follow and link it to a person, then the movie was created by an auteur. The shots do not have to be beautiful, but I believe that they have to be structured for the creator to be called an auteur.

I suggest that you resize your screenshots and images to ‘Large’ in the ‘Image Options.’ The ‘Image Options’ tag appears above or below an image when you click on it while editing in the Rich Content Editor.
As you watch and/or review The Bigamist, take notes on formal and thematic patterns. Are certain kinds of shots or editing patterns repeated? What about how Lupino frames characters or objects in the frame? Are there certain concepts, themes, or tropes that you see repeated throughout the film? Please choose one shot/scene from The Bigamist and embed a screenshot(s) or YouTube clip into your post. Let the class know the significance of this scene or shot in relation to locating Lupino as an auteur. You may also disagree that she is an auteur, but please keep the conversation in line with what Lewis outlines in the reading. A director need not have an overwhelming stylistic presence in order to be considered an auteur (e.g. Hawks, Wilder). Sometimes other narrative elements emerge. If you are feeling ambitious, watch another film by Lupino or select clips from YouTube or Vimeo of other Lupino films for comparison. What do you think designates a filmmaker as an auteur?

Please explain.

Write six type-written, double-spaced pages on one of the prompts below using several sources from the syllabus through this week, including the books, articles, films and our discussions. Cite any quoted text with author and page in parentheses, (e.g., Cooper, p.105 or “Casablanca”, etc. or “Class Notes, date”) immediately after the quote or reference. Do not cite “Class Notes” more than twice in your exam. Exams are due back to me electronically on Wednesday October 5, 2022 by 8:00 p.m.
Prompts:
1. Please compare and contrast the Muscogee Busk its design and purpose as a symbolic event and narrative, to the symbolic myth and structure of the American Western as presented in Cooper’s The Pioneers. One could argue that both employ symbolic oppositional conflicts, yet may be very different in intent and outcome. Please explain.
2. D.H. Lawrence’s notion of “wish fulfillment” can be viewed as Cooper’s remedy for cultural trauma, and perhaps the only means to create a myth of social reconciliation in the racially diverse and stratified society in America. Why do you think wish-fulfillment worked effectively in Cooper’s narrative myth in The Pioneers for the American public? Please explain.

You can use all the materials presented to date in the class including the film clips we have seen and in bcourse. References to the film scenes must be specific, not general, and you may use specific commentary or analysis on these films that you research, otherwise it’s materials from the assigned reading and my class discussion notes [only twice]. Remember my words cannot speak for you only support your argument.
Thesis statement
In an expository essay, the writer needs to clearly identify the thesis that they will defend with their argument throughout the essay. [15 points]
Defense of your thesis
You must defend through a rational argument using evidence to demonstrate your position. As indicated in the MIdterm prompt, all evidence and materials for your defense of the thesis must come from within what has been presented in the course. [40 points]
Evidence
You must cite all quotes from textual and other sources. In this essay, citing requires source name, page number, URL, or date if from my notes. See prompt for examples. [30 points]
Grammar, syntax, punctuation, spelling
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeGrammar, syntax, punctuation and spelling
Your essay needs to be properly presented, and well written. Grammar, syntax, punctuation, and spelling are all elements of presentation. [15 points]
Total Points: 100
All films, books, and articles mentioned in the attached documents can be used. The movies can be found on Netflix, etc., but if you need them for what you are trying to use, I can send you links, etc.
Whichever prompt you choose, you will use this book, so I am attaching a link to it.

The scene I chose to analyze happens at around 1:12:30. The shot consists of three characters lined up on the screen but in different places in the hallway. Phyllis is closest to the camera, then Walter, and finally Keyes is the furthest away. Walter is the character in the middle of the screen because he is the character who connects both Keyes and Phyllis. Another aspect of the positioning of the characters is that Walter has his back to Phyllis which may foreshadow that she will backstab him later in the film. The camera angle is at chest height. I think that the scene is interesting because of the hiding. Walter is hiding Phyllis from Keyes. This represents how throughout the story, Walter is deceiving Keyes and keeping Phyllis’ secrets protected. Noir style shows the darkness of the time period from the reading because Noir films had a very hopeless feeling to them similar to the war being fought at the time. According to the reading, Noir films portrayed characters as especially violent which is accurate of the characters in Double Indemnity.
The Noir film clip I chose was from Scarlet Street. My first impression of the clip is that it was creepy. The voices taunting the man are very unsettling. Because the room is dark and the film is in black and white the scene is even more frightening. According to Wess Haubrich, in the article called “Looking into the film noir void: Lang’s Scarlet Street (1945)”, the film was directed by director Fritz Lang and is considered to be a very dark story even by Noir standards. The movie involves jealousy, theft, and murder. According to Tim Dirks from the website filmsite.org’s page on the movie, the movie is a remake of a film from the early 1930s.

Your analyses should refer to course materials and reflect on how film style and history function. A post that earns full points will not merely agree with course materials, but will visually illustrate ideas in the reading. Do not forget to include embedded media (YouTube clip or images) that visualizes the example(s) in your post. Please make sure that you read all of the posts in your discussion group before posting. I cannot give full points to posts that duplicate examples or YouTube clips. Please limit your posts to no more than 400 words and 1-2 examples to give others a chance to write about key scenes/shots. I suggest that you resize your screenshots and images to ‘Large’ in the ‘Image Options.’ The ‘Image Options’ tag appears above or below an image when you click on it while editing in the Rich Content Editor.

Please choose one shot from Double Indemnity and embed a screenshot of the shot into your post. Describe how one or more of the formal elements of the shot including: lighting, composition, cinematography, placement of characters and objects in the frame, decor, set design, and camera angles communicate something unique that story, plot, and dialogue alone do not. How does noir style show the darkness of the time period described in the reading? Please do not select a shot from the scene analyzed by Lewis in the reading that I have included on the preceding page.
In addition to your shot analysis from Double Indemnity, please embed one YouTube clip from a film from the early classical Hollywood noir period (1941-1946) that you would like to share with the class. Several examples are mentioned in the reading: Laura, Murder My Sweet, Scarlet Street, and Detour. Let us know your impressions of the clip if you have not previously seen the film. Please conduct some research about the film and provide a brief summary for your classmates about its historical or stylistic significance.
