Hollywood in the White House

This high octane journey through 83 years of Hollywood films and TV shows about U.S. presidents features scenes and discussions of such political science favorites as House of Cards, VEEP, Dr. Strangelove, Seven Days in May, Nixon, and the bizarre 1930s rarity, Gabriel Over the White House.

This program will be presented by film historian, author, and speaker, Max Alvarez. His talks are rich in historical and cultural information and bolstered with humor and witty anecdotes.
