Jeremy Arnold is the author of Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season, to be published in October 2018 by TCM and Running Press. 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 has also contributed essays to another book being published this October, The Call of the Heart: John M. Stahl and Hollywood Melodrama (Indiana University Press).
Other past 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 nearly 600 programming articles to date for the Turner Classic Movies website.
His commentating work includes a recent stint as guest host on FilmStruck and on TCM with Ben Mankiewicz. Jeremy has recorded nine audio commentaries for the Blu-ray or DVD release of classic films, most recently for Raw Deal (1948) and Driftwood (1947), 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.
