William Maxwell, F.C.M.A., grew up in the era of rock `n roll and is an expert on history and trends in music. UCR Osher instructor since 2012. 182-CCS-109 At the Movies: Is Life Still a Cabaret? Wed. 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m., Sep. 19-Oct. 24 The 1972 film adaptation of the Broadway musical “Cabaret,” directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse and winner of 8 Academy Awards®, is considered one of the greatest film musicals ever produced, and perhaps the last great American film musical. Could it be possible that no film musical in the last 46 years has matched its excellence? We will explore this premise by screening and discussing six contenders: “All That Jazz” (1979), “Victor, Victoria” (1982), “Yentl” (1983), ”Beauty and the Beast” (1991), “Moulin Rouge” (2001), and “Chicago” (2002). We’ll also take a look at film musicals since 2002 to see if any have risen to the level of “honorable mention.” John W. Lugar, M.D. See bio on page 3.

Both can be done with hand-held iOS devices like your iPhone, iPad, or Mac laptop, and by downloading the free application (app), Penzu. In- class instruction includes learning the important elements of journaling by practicing writing journal entries, and documenting your plans to affect your local community, society as a whole, or the world through volunteerism activities, or other means. Uncover ideas about the personal imprint you would like to leave for others, as you document it electronically as your personal artifact (Artifact, 2018) for historical interest, giving back, and reflection.

To encourage enlistments, maintain morale, and hold public support, many called it “The War to End All Wars.” In our six sessions, there is much to consider. How and why did European governments fall into a war few wanted? How did the course of war expand on battlefields, at sea, and in the air? How did it affect homefronts and the role of women in nations-in-arms? What were the aims of the belligerents? Why did the United States enter the war, and why did Russia collapse in revolution? What led to the armistice of November 11, 1918, that stopped the fighting? And how did the consequences of the subsequent peace treaties sow the seeds of a far greater conflict that affects the world, even today.
