Description

Former Leon Levy Biography Fellow Vanda Krefft will discuss her new biography, "The Man Who Made the Movies: the Meteoric Rise and Tragic Fall of William Fox." Krefft's groundbreaking biography tells the story of a visionary entrepreneur on the order of a Steve Jobs or Walt Disney, though one whose achievements have been underappreciated or lost to time until now. Drawing on a decade of original research, "The Man Who Made the Movies" offers a rich, compelling look at William Fox, a complex man emblematic of his time, one of the most fascinating and formative eras in American history.
