Fighting Fear Through Film: Newark’s Dore Schary

Dore Schary, the Newark-born film director, writer, producer, playwright and head of MGM Studios in its 1950s heyday, was the Hollywood mogul responsible for films such as An American in Paris and Crossfire, and the playwright of classics like Sunrise at Campobello.

Not just a leader in his industry, Schary was also outspoken about his Jewish heritage, and a strong believer in using film as a weapon to fight prejudice. Film scholar and adjunct professor of cinema at Yeshiva University, Dr. Eric Goldman, will chronicle Schary’s contributions to Hollywood and Broadway, and his battles for social justice and against anti-Semitism, through a lecture illustrated with film clips.
