Jeremy Arnold is an author, film historian 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 Blu-ray release of David Lean’s epic.
Jeremy is also a contributing author of the 2003 edition of Jeanine Basinger’s book The World War II Combat Film: Anatomy of a Genre (Wesleyan University Press, 2003), and his essay on the making of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was published by Sony in its recent Blu-ray release of that picture. Further essays and interviews with filmmakers and industry professionals have appeared over the years in Variety, Moviemaker, Premiere and the Directors Guild of America magazine.
Jeremy has recorded audio commentaries for the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Budd Boetticher’s Ride Lonesome (1959), Frank Capra’s Ladies of Leisure (1930), and Alfred Hitchcock’s Jamaica Inn (1939, upcoming release). He’s even brought his movie knowledge and passion to the high seas, having been engaged as a guest programmer, host and lecturer aboard several Crystal Cruises with classic film themes–including a complete career tribute to Marilyn Monroe.
