For over a decade, Yale film Professor Marc Lapadula educated and entertained our students, and he is featured in all of today’s video clips. His knowledge and love of movies was remarkable, and his kindness and humor made him a favorite across the country and to all of us at One Day U. Marc passed away recently, but he will never be forgotten by any of us, and we extend our condolences to his family.
Greatest Movie Ever Made?
Citizen Kane was filmed in 1941: directed and produced by, and starring, Orson Welles. He was also involved in the editing, and co-wrote the screenplay. It was Welles’ first movie, and now–more than 80 years later–it’s still often considered the greatest ever.
The Relationship Between Godfather I and Godfather II
These two movies, among the greatest ever made, relate directly to each other in fascinating ways.
Words and Pictures
Very rarely is a truly great book made into a truly great movie. But that certainly describes To Kill a Mockingbird. Even the title has become iconic.
This Movie is REALLY Scary
Alfred Hitchcock was a master director who loved to add all sorts of symbolism, foreshadowing, and humor into his movies – especially his masterpiece, Psycho.
Wait for the End
A handful of movies have scenes that are truly and undeniably funny. This scene from Ladybird is one of them.
The Birth of Civilization
Among the most famous edits in film history comes early in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
