In this course, ‘Gangsters, Pranksters and Odd Couples’, Patricia has spread her net a little wider than before to involve a bigger cast of Jewish performers and celebrities, most being best known for their comedy or gangster roles.  Each session will shine the spotlight on at least one Oscar, Golden Globe or Emmy winner.

In addition to learning about the celebrities’ lives and that of some of their relatives and people they worked closely with, we will also touch on issues such as: anti-Semitism in literature; wartime patriotism & grey-listing; and championing a US National Theatre.
