The CFILM Podcast: It’s A Gift with Scott Higgins and Jeanine Basinger!

The CFILM podcast is back! This week, Scott and Jeanine sit down to discuss an old favorite: WC Field’s It’s a Gift (1934). This is part one of two; here, we discuss the film’s context, history, and costuming, and next time the two professors will give a running commentary as they watch the film.

If you want to be prepared for part two, the film is (delightfully) readily available online. Watch it at The Internet Archive, and then check back in for a rewatch.

The CFILM Podcast Episode 13! Jaws the Third

This week, CFILM continues its exploration of Jaws with Michael Slowik. Professor Slowik, whose body of work includes After the Silents: Hollywood Film Music in the Early Sound Era, 1926-1934, naturally tackles how the film uses sound. In particular, of course, he investigates that score, and how to approach soundtrack as a film scholar.
