For Tuesday, October 18, please do the following:
(1) Watch the nostalgia-inducing (Disney's) Hercules (John Musker and Ron Clements, 1997), taking notes as you see
fit. In addition to the DVD being reserved at the library, the film is
also streaming on Amazon.
(2) Read Chris Pallant's essay, "Developments in Peplum Filmmaking: Disney's Hercules," another entry from the terrific Of Muscles and Men volume. Pallant will help us connect the dots between Harryhausen, first-wave peplum films, and the Disney version.
(3) Remember by noon on Tuesday to comment on this post with your choice of a sequence from Hercules to view in class.
