Jeremy Arnold is an author, film historian, award-winning filmmaker, and longtime contributor to Turner Classic Movies. Since 2003, he has written over 500 programming articles and classic film reviews for the TCM website, and he has penned on-air intros for host Robert Osborne. His 2012 book, Lawrence of Arabia: The 50th Anniversary, was published by Sony Pictures Entertainment as the official companion to the first-ever Blu-ray release of David Lean’s epic.
Arnold is also a contributing author of the 2003 edition of Jeanine Basinger’s book The World War II Combat Film: Anatomy of a Genre. His essays, reviews and interviews with top directors and Hollywood professionals have appeared over the years in Variety, Moviemaker, Premiere, and the Directors Guild of America magazine.
Arnold has recorded audio commentaries for the DVD releases of Budd Boetticher’s Ride Lonesome (1959) and Frank Capra’s Ladies of Leisure (1930). He’s even brought his movie knowledge and passion to the high seas, having been engaged as a guest programmer, host and lecturer aboard luxury cruises with classic film themes — most recently a Crystal cruise devoted to a complete career retrospective of Marilyn Monroe.
In addition to his movie introductions at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, you may well see Arnold running around to numerous other screenings that he is covering as one of the official festival bloggers.
