Widescreen Wednesday
The Art of Detection Series



The public's never-ending fascination with detective stories stretches at least as far back as the 19th century, and continues today. This series of detective films and TV shows presents examples of the classic detective, but also branches out to include broader definitions of "detective," as well as exciting mysteries from countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Attend the series, and you may find your own definition of "detective" changing...and you may discover a new favorite film, or more. Enjoy a brief presentation by a School of Theatre, Film & Television faculty member just before the screening.





In the days of classic Hollywood, fast-paced and exciting "B-movie" mysteries would often play before the main feature. These mysteries were typically part of a larger series starring famous "B-movie" detectives like Sherlock Holmes, Charlie Chan and Boston Blackie. This film from 1943 will show the witty and sophisticated detective known as The Falcon (played by Tom Conway) investigating a scandalous murder at a women's college. The Falcon must deal with sinister faculty, spooky psychics, and, of course, lots of co-eds in order to solve the mystery!

Plus, check out a classic short film from MGM's gritty crime series, Crime Must Not Pay, which uses shocking plot twists to scare the audience away from a life of law-breaking! Some of Hollywood's biggest stars got their start in this series.
