I just showed Frankenstein. Though many of my students said they were going to come and wanted the extra credit I promised, only one student and her friend showed up. They really enjoyed the film and asked me questions about the book and its resemblance (or lack thereof) to the film. Since I have taught the book Frankenstein (the first version) a number of times, I was able to say something about that. And the girls said they wanted to come back for future films. But I despair of attracting anyone else or getting the rest of the students in the class to show up.
I joined Netflix so I could be sure to have the films, and it seems that has been for nothing. I will try hanging up signs in a few places, and perhaps we'll attract some more people for next week's film, Prizzi's Honor.
