We have been spoiled with the prodigious number of brilliant performances by some actors like Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Alec Guinness.  This course will offer tribute to gifted movie actors whose careers were too short. Hearing the names William Holden, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jean Harlow and Brittany Murphy makes us wistful. Which of them received their due in fame and honor? Which did not?
