Known primarily for his decade-long collaboration with the great film director Alfred Hitchcock, Bernard Herrmann (1911-1975) had a long and distinguished Hollywood career dating back to his association with Orson Welles. His first film score, written for Welles’ masterpiece “Citizen Kane”, put “Benny” as he was affectionately called by his fellow composers on the fast track to fame. He proceeded to spend the next 15 years composing classic scores for films such as “The Magnificent Ambersons”, “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir”, “Portrait of Jennie”, and “The Day the Earth Stood Still”. But it was Herrmann’s compositions for such Hitchcock classics as “Vertigo”, “North by Northwest”, and “Psycho” that has truly endeared him to generations of filmgoers who appreciate the importance of music in getting audiences emotionally invested in the cinematic experience. We will have an opportunity during this program to revisit many of the mood-setting scores Herrmann created right through his final work on Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver”. Additionally we will examine the circumstances leading to his creative differences with Hitchcock which terminated their professional relationship.

October Pick: Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman

The delightful new romantic comedy from Elinor Lipman, in which one woman's trash becomes another woman's treasure, with deliriously entertaining results. Daphne Maritch doesn't quite know what to make of the heavily annotated high school yearbook she inherits from her mother, who held this relic dear. Too dear. The late June Winter Maritch was the teacher to whom the class of '68 had dedicated its yearbook, and in turn she went on to attend every reunion, scribbling notes and observations after each one-not always charitably-and noting who overstepped boundaries of many kinds. In a fit of decluttering (the yearbook did not, Daphne concluded, "spark joy"), she discards it when she moves to a small New York City apartment. But when it's found in the recycling bin by a busybody neighbor/documentary filmmaker, the yearbook's mysteries-not to mention her own family's-take on a whole new urgency, and Daphne finds herself entangled in a series of events both poignant and absurd.

Chaim Soutine was introduced to Amedeo Modigliani in Paris in 1915.  Both foreigners from very different backgrounds, Modigliani from an urbane Sephardic Italian family and Soutine from dire poverty in the Lithuanian shtetl, the two struggling artists became close friends until Modigliani’s tragic early death.   This talk will offer an introduction to each painter, focusing on the 5 years of the special relationship between the elegant, cultured Modigliani and his awkward outsider protégé Soutine.

Since the beginning of motion pictures, making audiences laugh has been one of the film industry’s chief box office attractions. Skilled acrobatic comedians like Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, and Charlie Chaplin were enormously popular in the silent era, as were their more verbally dexterous talking picture successors the Marx Brothers and W.C. Fields. Comedy exploded once movies could talk, from screwball to romance to social satire to musicals, and in recent decades dozens of new variations have appeared from over-the-top dark comedy to gross-out teen comedy. This survey will look at the major highlights of screen comedy over the last 125 years, illustrated with more than 40 examples from Hollywood’s funniest films.

Brian Rose teaches courses on film and television history at Fordham University.

George Danby | Editorial Cartoonist - Protecting the president

One of our Presidents once said, “If somebody wants to kill me they would certainly have ample chance to do so”. Too many times in our history the job of protecting our chief executive has been put to the ultimate test.  The U. S. Secret Service has had this daunting chore since the service was officially given this responsibility in 1901. Join Howard Ehrlich and Harvey Sackowitz as they put you into the shoes of one of our special agents in order to show you how complex this job has really become over the years.

Gettysburg National Military Park! - The Bill Beaver Project

The clash of the Union and Confederate Armies at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania marked the last offensive of the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War.  During those days in July 1863, New York regiments waited to meet their Southerner adversaries and represented one quarter of the entire Union Army at the battle.  6,700 New Yorkers became casualties (killed, wounded, or missing) and many were buried in the National Soldier’s Cemetery in Gettysburg dedicated by President Lincoln in November 1863.  Please join historian Dr. Jennifer Speelman to discuss the three-day battle, the contribution of these New York regiments, and the state’s commemoration of war dead.     

Dr. Jennifer Speelman is an Associate Professor of History at the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point.  She received her B.A. in English from the Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA and her M.A. and Ph.D. in History from  Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.  Dr. Speelman took over the KP Gettysburg Staff Ride program in Oct. 2019 and takes Midshipmen to the Battlefield to gain an appreciation of how historical themes can teach leadership.  She has attended Gettysburg College’s Civil War Institute and taught as a Visiting Professor at the United States Army War College, Carlisle PA. She and her family have called Great Neck home since 2011.

November Pick: Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life—until the unthinkable happens.


Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Typhoid Mary Mallon – Villain or Victim? | PAUL ANDREWS

Between 1900 and 1907, an Irish immigrant cook named Mary infected dozens of New Yorkers with typhoid fever. Tracked down through detective work, she was finally taken into custody and quarantined on an island off Manhattan, where she died decades later. This fascinating lecture tells the remarkable story of the woman known as Typhoid Mary and why she is remembered as the first “healthy” carrier of a deadly virus. At a time when viruses pose serious questions about the threats and quandaries of epidemics, Typhoid Mary’s story couldn’t be more timely.

Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., is an award-winning actress and scholar who has been portraying famous women and presenting history lectures for more than ten years. She holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University specializing in U.S. history and American Studies as well as master's degrees in both theater and museum studies. A former museum director, she is the author of two books on Chicago history and currently works full-time as a historical interpreter, author, and public speaker.

Many critically acclaimed and enduring films lost money for their investors back in the day, including The Wizard of Oz, Citizen Kane, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Sweet Smell of Success, Raging Bull, and Quiz Show.

Join film historian Max Alvarez for this 90-minute lecture (with film clips and archival images) on the history of box office highlights and low points for quality achievements in cinema.

Max Alvarez is a film historian and author who has been delivering talks on cinema history for over two decades. He began his career as a Midwest entertainment journalist before working in various areas of the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. In Washington, D.C., he was a museum film curator and an outside coordinator for The Smithsonian Institution's film programs.

Diego Rivera's Pan American Unity

Diego Rivera Mural Project

Join Zoom Meeting. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85695498437?pwd=bWc1OU5VNHZHNGxXRGlleXV2QVJ3QT09

Meeting ID: 856 9549 8437
Passcode: 782026

Pan American Unity is a mural painted by Mexican artist and muralist Diego Rivera for Art In Action exhibition at Treasure Island’s Golden Gate International (GGIE) in San Francisco, CA in 1940. Rivera’s work was the centerpiece of the Art In Action exhibit, which featured many artists engaged in creating works during the Exposition while the public watched.  The mural is composed of ten panels arranged in five sections, all of which relate Rivera's firmly held belief that multicultural artistic expression will form into a unified cultural entity regardless of individual points of origin. His belief in the eventual unity of the Americas inspired the images represented in this mural.  “I believe in order to make an American art, a real American art, this will be necessary, this blending of the art of the Indian, the Mexican, the Eskimo, with the kind of urge which makes the machine, theinvention in the material side of life, which is also an artistic urge, the same urge primarily but in adifferent form of expression.” — Diego Rivera

Rivera’s masterpiece is currently exhibited at the SFMoMA for the first time, where it is anticipated to be seen by more visitors than at any time in its 80 year history. Join Professor Thomas Germanowho will present this virtual, visual art lecture.

Passcode: 231155

Days at the pool or the tennis court, nights in the casino or the comedy club. This was summer in the Catskills in the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s, the glory days of the mountain playlands that warmly welcomed Yiddish-speaking immigrants and refugees along with their families. In hotels, bungalow colonies, tiny kuchalaynes and lavish resorts, the entertainment was A-list and the non-stop food was kosher. Join us for the story of the legendary Borscht Belt, the Yiddish vacationland that reshaped the Jewish American experience, helped Americanize Holocaust survivors and profoundly changed our definition of comedy.

Dr. Linda Burghardt, the Scholar-in-Residence at the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center, is a journalist and author from Great Neck. She worked as a freelance reporter for The New York Times for 20 years and is the author of three non-fiction books. Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers across the U.S., and she has lectured to both national and international audiences.  She holds a Ph.D. from LIU-Post and is the daughter of Holocaust survivors from Vienna.

Frederick Law Olmstead and the Creation of Central Park

Join Zoom Meeting  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87058486714?pwd=NjViejIyaldZQXpPM2QvTHV1dWFaQT09

A Walk in the Park: Central Park Becomes a Classroom for 15 UVA Students |  UVA Today

Olmsted, working with Calvert Vaux, designed Central Park in response to a competition held in New York City in 1857. Vaux was responsible for the architectural features, while Olmsted transformed more than 800 acres of New York’s original terrain into the landscape we know today. Central Park quickly became a symbol of our national culture and its landscaping a model for thousands of municipal parks across the nation. We’ll discuss how the idea of the Park came about and consider the many innovative elements of its design that have endeared it to millions of visitors.

Emily Kies Folpe attended Bryn Mawr College and received her M.A and Ph.D. in Art History from Columbia University.  For many years she served as Museum Educator at the Museum of Modern Art and taught at Sarah Lawrence College and other area institutions. More recently she lectured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and gave courses at NYU’s School of Professional Studies. Emily is the author of It Happened on Washington Square, published by the Johns Hopkins University in 2002.
