HOW WOMEN WERE PORTRAYED BY THE HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

Join film historian, art critic, educator, New York Times best-selling author and our resident film curator Marc Eliot every Friday night for the Greatest Films ever released, screened like they should be seen on the Giant Screen.

MARC ELIOT

Marc Eliot is a renowned classical film scholar and New York Times bestselling author of more than 25 books including definitive biographies on John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Clint Eastwood, Charlton Heston, Steve McQueen, Cary Grant and Clint Eastwood, as well as Ronald Reagan (Reagan: The Hollywood Years) and Walt Disney. A New York City native, Eliot began his career as a child actor and student at the High School of Performing Arts (featured in Fame), and has worked as a musician, television producer, and writer for national magazines. He holds an advanced degree from Columbia University, where he was a protégé of film critic, scholar and founder of "auteurism," Andrew Sarris. Eliot lives in Manhattan but has become a regular visitor to the Peoria area, first serving as artist-in-residence at Eureka College in 2012 and hosting his first "The Art of Film" festival at the Peoria Riverfront Museum on Alfred Hitchcock, March 2019.
