Ever wanted to see your name in lights? CMCI Senior Lecturer Dr Harvey G. Cohen was certainly surprised to see just that in the USA over the marquee for the American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre and Cultural Center.

Harvey did four events in two days at their at the Silver Spring, Maryland as part of his US tour taking about his books about films of the American depression and about jazz legend Duke Ellington. We’v added the Ellington poster below.

Cohen’s most recent book: Who’s in the Money?: The Great Depression Musicals and Hollywood s New Deal was published by Edinburgh University Press in Spring, 2018.
