With John Kenrick, Entertainment Historian
John is back by popular demand to present:
11/28 Billy Wilder: “Nobody’s Perfect” – He fled Nazi oppression and became the most versatile and successful screenwriter-director in Hollywood. He infuriated some colleagues and was deeply beloved by others. How did the genius behind the tragic Sunset Boulevard also create the classic mystery Witness for the Prosecution and the timeless comedy Some Like It Hot?
12/5 Judy Garland: “The Things That You Dare to Dream” – In vaudeville from age 2,
by age 17 she won the world’s heart in The Wizard of Oz, becoming Louis B. Mayer’s top
musical star. By age 28, MGM tossed her aside as a “has been.” With fascinating behind the
scenes stories and exciting video clips of Garland in action, we see how this powerhouse
performer’s demons kept her teetering between triumph and tragedy.
