A comparison is made between different levels of listening comprehension and different genres of English literary movies; classic, modern literary and contemporary. The sample consists of 100 randomly chosen third year English Majors of the faculty of Education. Students were divided into a control and an experimental groups. Results of the study showed a significant difference between the performance of the experimental group students' and those of the control group in the listening comprehension test. Appended are: (1) the listening comprehension test and answer sheet; (2) script for the selected scenes; and (3) screen shots from each scene. (Contains 5 tables, 2 footnotes, and 6 resources.)
