Clive, Young, Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts is a fast-paced sequel to my popular Kaboom: The History of Special Effects program, tracing the action-packed evolution of stunt work in movies.

From car chases, explosions and leaping off bridges, to sword fights, motorboat jumps and hanging from helicopters, Hollywood stuntmen and women risk their lives daily to bring excitement to the silver screen.

Starting in the early 1900s, the program follows a timeline of movie stunts throughout the ages, presenting some of the most spectacular acts ever put to celluloid while explaining the advancements in technology, training and safety that made them possible.

Amazing stories and profiles reveal how and why stuntmen do what they do. What feats are they most afraid of? How do they focus when they know their next move could be their last?

Illustrating the program are legendary stunts throughout film history, from the work of pioneers like Harold Lloyd, to clips from The French Connection, The Bourne Identity, The Road Warrior, Smokey and the Bandit, the James Bond series and more. Presented with plenty of “don’t try this at home” reminders, Yikes is an exciting program for all ages.

Crocker, Keith ARTFUL VISCERA - An Exploration of the Italian Horror film 1960 through 1980 History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other
The Italians reinvented the horror film between 1960 and 1980. Generally, the genre was frowned upon by the fascist movement of the 1930's, but once the war ended and Italy had a chance to get back on their feet, they ended up making up for lost time by producing some of the most frightening films ever to grace a movie theater screen. From the trend setting work of directors like Mario Bava (Black Sunday) to the misanthropic nightmares of Lucio Fulci (Zombie), Italian horror films continue to place their mark on the current crop of American made nightmare films. Join me for the ultimate history lesson on European trash cinema. Comes complete with a vintage memorabilia presentation plus a 16mm showing of a digest version of Horror Castle (1963). This program would be very popular with your younger teenage and college years patrons.
