Instructors & Facilitators: Don Melander, Mary Lee Sargent

In this third study of Hitchcock, we’re focusing on The Wrong Man (1956), Vertigo (1957), North by Northwest (1958), Psycho (1960), The Birds (1962), Marnie (1964), and Torn Curtain (1969). This seminar meets year round every Friday morning from 10 to noon (on ZOOM) or 10 to 1 (LIVE). When we meet live, we screen the movie together where we meet. For meetings on Zoom, which would be announced in advance, participants screen the week’s film on TV or computer during the week prior to Friday’s discussion. After the Hitchcock series, we will resume our ongoing focus on movies directed by women. New participants are welcome to join the spring session.

During his career at New England College, Don Melander created and taught a course called “Literature as Film, Film as Literature,” but he has enjoyed no formal training in film. Mary Lee Sargent is a retired Professor of History and Women’s Studies and has taught at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois, where she was also Director of the Women and Gender Studies Department. After moving to NH in 2003, she served as an adjunct instructor at Southern NH and Plymouth State Universities and Lakes Region and NHTI Community College. Mary Lee and Don are film buffs who enjoy what we call “conversations at Friendly’s after we’ve seen the movies.”
