Students will watch one of the movies on list 1, paying careful attention to one of the actor’s listed. After watching the film the student will then choose an actor/film from list 2 and also watch that film. The objective is to compose a paper comparing and contrasting the two-actor’s performance style, believability and physicality. You can do some brief cited research on the actors training if you’d like but it’s not necessary. The important thing is to focus on what similarities or differences you see in each actor by watching each film. Did you believe or prefer one actor to the other? Make sure you choose two movies you’ve never seen and that your own response to the two actors in each film is apparent in the paper. Minimum word requirement is 600 to 750 words, but feel free to expand if needed. Again, if research is used cite all sources!
You are suppose to write on one actor from a film from list 2 (years 1920 to 1979) to papers to an actor from Response 1 list (years 1980 to now)
