In late breaking news, UMW Senior Sara Gross, an American Studies major, finally chose a movie on which to base her HIST329 semester project. Gross initially indicated a desire to analyze the 1992 favorite, A League of Their Own, but failure to find ample scholarly examination of the film forced the determined student to redirect her search. She wanted to avoid movies with a military background, saying that she’d “been there, done that,” so she turned her attention elsewhere. After an exhaustive search of UMW’s legendary Academic Complete database, Gross delightedly reported “a butt ton” of adequate sources for Robert Redford’s 1994 film, Quiz Show. Kudos to Jim Groom for providing such an awesome search too.
More details on this breaking news will be published as the story unfolds.
