Course Lecture / symposium
The 1920s and 30s in Britain were the Golden Age of the detective novel. Agatha Christie rapidly became the ‘Queen of Crime’, producing over 60 crime novels and creating hundreds of fictional corpses. More ‘academic’ in style was Dorothy L Sayers, whose detective, Lord Peter Wimsey of Gaudy Night and other novels, remains a controversial literary figure. Enjoy some ‘cosy’ British crime in this lecture on murder and sleuthing.

Art After Hours Film
Dir: John Huston 1951 (US)

Humphrey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn
Bogart won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the gin-swilling Charlie Allnut, in director Huston’s celebrated World War I adventure. With the spinster sister of a murdered missionary, Rosie Sayer (Hepburn), as his unlikely passenger, the pair combat the elements, the Germans and each other as they make their way downriver on a dilapidated steamboat in East Africa. Despite their constant bickering, the odd companions are surprised to find themselves falling in love. With a script by James Agee and Huston from CS Forester’s novel, the film was shot on location in the Belgian Congo by Jack Cardiff.
