Chicago on Screen

A Road Scholar Program by Sarah Marcus

Chicago on Screen Join historian Sarah Marcus and view the history of Chicago through television and film, noting how producers of popular culture have depicted the city and its residents. Using a variety of clips – from Scarface (1932) to The Untouchables (1987), from Studs’ Place (1950-51) to Good Times (1974-79) – this presentation follows the camera’s focus and reflects on lasting impressions created by flashing images on the screen.
