Hosting Kelli Marshall’s Film Noir presentation for the public was an exceptionally entertaining and informative experience! Marshall’s ability to engage all audience members, novices and enthusiasts alike, is impressive!

Thank you for an absolutely wonderful webinar presentation. I learned so much about The Blues Brothers and about filmmaking.
