Jeremy Arnold’s latest book is Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season, published last fall by Running Press and TCM. His 2016 book, The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter, is the official companion to TCM’s “Essentials” program and features a foreword by Robert Osborne. Jeremy also contributed two essays to last year’s The Call of the Heart: John M. Stahl and Hollywood Melodrama.
Other writing work includes Lawrence of Arabia: The 50th Anniversary, published by Sony Pictures Entertainment as part of that film’s Blu-ray debut, contributions to Jeanine Basinger’s The World War II Combat Film: Anatomy of a Genre, numerous essays and liner notes for home entertainment releases, and over 600 programming articles to date for the Turner Classic Movies website.
Jeremy has appeared on TCM twice as a guest host with Ben Mankiewicz, including last December’s tribute to Christmas movies, and he has recorded eleven audio commentaries for the Blu-ray or DVD release of classic films, including forthcoming tracks for The Lavender Hill Mob (1951) and Day of the Outlaw (1959). Earlier this year, he was invited by the Autry Museum to select and introduce two classic westerns as guest film curator, and he has even brought his movie passion to the high seas: twice he has been engaged as a guest programmer, host, and lecturer aboard Crystal Cruises with classic movie themes—including a complete career tribute to Marilyn Monroe.
A native of Washington, D.C., Jeremy resides in Los Angeles but is a lifelong fan of the New York Mets.
