MARC ELIOT

Marc Eliot, a well-known and highly respected film critic and historian, is the New York Times bestselling author of 26 books including definitive biographies on Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, Charlton Heston, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Ronald Reagan (Reagan: The Hollywood Years), Walt Disney, The Eagles and his latest work, The Hag, about Merle Haggard.

Eliot began his career as a child actor and student at the High School of Performing Arts. He went on to earn two post-graduate degrees in writing and Film History and Criticism from Columbia University, where he was mentored by the renowned film critic and scholar Andrew Sarris, who brought the French Auteur Theory to America.

A New York City native and resident, Eliot has become a regular visitor to the Peoria region, first serving as artist-in-residence at Eureka College in 2012. He hosted his first "Art of Film" festival, on Alfred Hitchcock, in March of 2019 at the Peoria Riverfront Museum, where he serves as resident film curator.
