Leading film historian Jeanine Basinger explores “the marriage movie,” tracing the many ways Hollywood has tussled with this tricky subject.
Join her as she looks at the complex relationships in marriages from Blondie and Dagwood to the heartrending couple in the Iranian film A Separation; from Coach and his wife in Friday Night Lights to Tracy and Hepburn to Laurel and Hardy (a marriage if ever there was one).
Please note: This program has been rescheduled from its original date of Mar 12.
