A Saturday Lecture with John Beebe, M.D.
In both seminars, we will analyze clips from the film considered using a Jungian lens. Students are encouraged to watch the entire film on their own in advance of each session. Individual Resilience in the Face of Collective Trauma. The films I plan to show and discuss are “The Clock” directed by Vincente Minnelli (1945) and “Roma” directed by Alfonso Cuaron (2018).
FORGING A CONIUNCTIO IN WARTIME
MGM’s offbeat “The Clock” (1945) provided Judy Garland a chance to act without singing, and her husband, Vincente Minnelli, to show that he could direct a drama as well as a musical. Robert Walker plays a soldier lost in Manhattan during his last weekend before being sent to the war in Europe. The young woman he bumps into in Grand Central Station is his one piece of good luck, but the connection between them that he insists they recognize is enough to galvanize them both to take setbacks in stride and surf synchronicities to propel their inevitable union.
John Beebe, M.D. is a Jungian analyst and past president of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco who has spearheaded a Jungian approach to the analysis of film. In teaching and writing, he has often used psychological type and archetype to explore both individual filmmaker creativity and the cultural and political unconscious as revealed by a moving film. Dr. Beebe’s books include Integrity in Depth and Energies and Patterns in Psychological Type. With Virginia Apperson, he has co-authored The Presence of the Feminine in Film.
