Jeremy Arnold

Jeremy Arnold’s most recent book is an expanded edition of Christmas in the Movies, published last fall by Running Press and TCM. His 2016 book The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter, and its 2020 follow-up The Essentials: Vol. 2, are companions to TCM’s long-running “Essentials” program, profiling some of the most vital and influential movies in film history. 

Jeremy also wrote Lawrence of Arabia: The 50th Anniversary, published by Sony Pictures Entertainment as a supplement to that film’s deluxe Blu-ray release; two essays in The Call of the Heart: John M. Stahl and Hollywood Melodrama, which traces the career of director John Stahl; contributions to Jeanine Basinger’s 2003 edition of The World War II Combat Film: Anatomy of a Genre; numerous essays and liner notes for home entertainment releases; and over seven hundred programming articles for the TCM website. Jeremy’s writing has also appeared in Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Moviemaker, Premiere, and DGA Magazine

His commentating work includes numerous audio commentaries for the Blu-ray or DVD releases of such classics as Sudden Fear (1952), Ride Lonesome (1959), Day of the Outlaw (1959), Ladies of Leisure (1930), Raw Deal (1948), and THE LAVENDER HILL MOB (1951); guest appearances on TCM with Ben Mankiewicz and on CNN with Jake Tapper; and speaking engagements at film festivals, museums, and repertory screenings across the United States and internationally. In July 2023, Jeremy programmed and guest-hosted, with Ben Mankiewicz, a 20-film TCM spotlight on B movies of the 1930s and 1940s, which will be the topic of one of his next books.

Jeremy is also a graduate of Wesleyan University, where he studied under eminent film scholar Jeanine Basinger, this year’s recipient of the Robert Osborne Award.
