'Directed by Billy Wilder' film series

Posted

The work of one of cinema’s finest directors is the subject of librarian Doug Swiszcz’s four-week film lecture series, Directed by Billy Wilder. One of several Jewish émigrés who established artistic careers in Hollywood after fleeing Europe during Hitler’s rise to power, Wilder was as successful with dramatic films as he was with comedies. In fact, his movies are often a deft blending of the two genres. The series begins on March 4 with Double Indemnity.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
