     I agree that they probably would not do "noir" again, but some other genre or aspect like precode, women, westerns have all been things TCM has concentrated on, and to have a course to go with it would be good.  Especially fun for me would be history as film...

I second that request! That really helped make my summer last year. It was so enjoyable. Please do it again, TCM and Ball State!

 

As much as I love noir I find it unlikely that Ball State and TCM would repeat the series.   Yea, they could feature noirs they didn't feature last time around but I just don't see that happening.   Instead I'm hoping that they feature pre-code films.  These are unique and tell us a lot about America during that time (just like noirs do about American's post WWII feelings).

Does anyone know if Ball State or  TCM will be running something similar for the summer of 2016? I really loved this course and looked forward to my weekends of film Noir. I wouldn't mind taking it again to enjoy the movies I missed the first time around.

 

Count me in! I would love to take another film noir class. I've been hooked on noir since Summer of Darkness 2015.

I think TCM is doing a summer theme on the western genre. My guess is that Ball may partner up with TCM again to do a course on westerns. An announcement has not been made yet, but as we get closer to summer, I bet we'll hear something.
