CMCI Senior Lecturer Dr Harvey G Cohen is off to the United States on a seven-date tour to talk about his latest book: Who’s in The Money?
He kicks off at the University of Texas, history department, on April 11th; then at the Film Forum, New York City, on April 23; on to three days at Lincoln Center, New York City (where he will also be talking about his earlier monograph on Duke Ellington at an event featuring Wynton Marsalis) from April 26th to 28th; and finally four events in two days (29-30th April) at the American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Who’s In the Money: The Great Depression Musicals and Hollywood’s New Deal (Edinburgh University Press, 2018) features three 1933 Warner Bros Great Depression musicals: “42nd Street”, “Gold Diggers of 1933” and “Footlight Parade”, all of which will be shown during Cohen’s “residence” at the American Film Institute.
Our photograph shows Harvey speaking about the book at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles earlier this year, which was followed next day by a talk and signing at Book Soup on Sunset Strip. Last month he was a guest speaker at the Rothermere American Institute, University of Oxford.
