I felt that Night by Elsie Wesile and Anthem by Alice Hoffman should be taught next year because they were the most interesting and had the most impact on me as the reader. Night by Elsie Wesile was very interesting because it was based on real events that happened in our history. The holocaust was a dark part of our past that should never be forgotten. Elsie went through complete hell and had to mourn the loss of his mother and two sisters at the same time

But what specifically do the critics like about Casablanca that has resulted in its popular appeal? From a woman’s prospective, Lauri Boeder writes on About.Com that “Casablanca is a great romance, a stirring wartime adventure, a suspenseful action movie, and in the end, a terrific buddy movie.” She further states that “Casablanca is thrilling on the first viewing, and so richly textured it rewards being watched over and over. The dialogue is clever, touching, and dryly funny by turns and utterly irresistible. See it once and then see it again.” is what she recommends. But what does Roger Ebert say about Casablanca?
I think he did this because, he wanted to get bigger roles in movies and not get small roles that know one noticed him. I think James Stewart became the most famous when he did movies with Alfred Hitchcock. I think his two best movies were Vertigo and Rear Window. I think he was a perfect fit for these two movies because, he just seemed like that type of guy in real life. He continued making films into the late 60’s until his hearing problems got to

The District 12 has been destroyed, with only 900 hundred survivors, including gale, prim, and her mom, but not Peeta's family.
Each serves its purpose well; the steel frame buildings just do so with more flair. I like to think that only a good movie would still be watched after fifty-three years. But, everything good about the book is missing or distorted (plot, characters, details). The plot is too convoluted to make a movie. But the movie of The Big Sleep is still a success and, well, a good movie, just because they changed the plot and the characters.
Jose Munguia Professor Hartmann English 152-03 1 December 2013 Success of the Wizard of Oz through Television The Wizard of Oz was a spectacular movie. The decade around Oz paved the way for many other amazing movies, which created new genres and set new standards for what a movie should be like. Some of the amazing movies that also came out during 1939 were: Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Of Mice and Men, Love Affair, The Hunchback to Notre Dame, and many other great award winning movies (Films101). Each of these movies have been awarded for their amazing directors, story, actors and visual effects.

Smith didn't run around with rock stars. ("I guess I needed attention," Ms. O'Neal says, about setting a fire at Rod Stewart's house and stealing his girlfriend's shoe.) But "West of Then" is good enough to make her own experiences just as memorable. This book's phantom is Karen Morgan, Ms. Smith's photogenic mother, who began life as part of a privileged Hawaiian family with a lineage tracing back to the Mayflower and wound up homeless in a Honolulu park. The tensions within this family are piercingly evoked.
