Hoosiers in Hollywood
Join film historian and USA Today’s Associate Media Editor Wes Gehring for a journey through the cinematic history of Indiana at the Syracuse Public Library. Drawing on research gathered for his 30+ books on film history, Gehring explains the importance of many Indiana performers such as Red Skelton, James Dean, Steve McQueen, Carole Lombard, Irene Dunne, Robert Wise and many others.
Gehring is a Ball State University telecommunications professor with a deep interest and love for film history, and especially Indiana film history. Explore the Hoosier state through its roots in early Hollywood all the way up to today’s blockbusters.
