Video, 1940 on-campus production of 'The American Way'

In 1940, before William C. DeMille helped establish the drama department at USC, the university housed several drama classes under the Old College. In this filmed production of “The American Way,” student actors use campus as their stage, and end the performance in Bovard Auditorium.
