HISTORICAL NOTE

The Frame on the Wall Club was an Augustana film society that made available both domestic and foreign films as campus events. Film festivals featured Bogart, Chaplin and others. The club disbanded in 1985 due to lack of funds and decreasing ticket sales. They presumably began ten years earlier in 1975.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Programs series (1975-1985, scattered) contains programs from film showings by the Frame on the Wall Club. The programs list the cast and producers of the films, and provide a summary and/or analysis of the film.
