TCM Presents Mad About Musicals!

Turner Classic Movies has announced its newest online course, "Mad About Musicals!"

The free course will take place from June 3rd to 30th, 2018.

This will be the fourth film course TCM has presented in partnership with Ball State University. TCM and Ball State have previously provided classes on film noir, slapstick comedy, and Alfred Hitchcock.

Full information, including the four-week course syllabus, is available at the class Canvas site. Click the enrollment button at Canvas to sign up.

A list of the musicals TCM will be showing in conjunction with the course is on the TCM site.

For additional background, Julia has an interview with Ball State's Richard Edwards posted at her site Cinema Crossroads.

And for anyone who missed the link I shared in March, the Ball State Daily News had an interesting article on how the course was designed.

Mad About Musicals! is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to know more about musicals to do a "deep dive" into the genre, learning film history along with enjoying some wonderful movies.

Update: I recommend two favorite musicals during each day of this series in TCM in June: Highlights.

Thanks for the link to the interview. I'm really looking forward to this course. I can never know enough about musicals, and the majority will be music I love.

Glad I could share the info! I think it's a great course idea; hopefully it will deepen the appreciation of those who love musicals and introduce newer film fans to many great movies.

Best wishes,
