    History of Film Lecture by Dr. Andrew Strycharski, 7/19/18 6:30 pm 1939 is remembered as “Hollywood’s Golden Year,” with such films as Stagecoach, Gone with the Wind, and The Wizard of Oz among the many memorable films released that year.

You can find him around town leading film lectures at the Coral Gables Art Cinema and the Miami Jewish Film Festival.
