Winston Churchill

CCA IV: Churchill and the Movies

March 24 - March 28, 2019
Searle Center

 In 1927, Winston Churchill wrote to his wife Clementine, “I am becoming a film fan.” He had projection equipment installed at Chequers, the country home of British prime ministers, in 1943, and at his family home Chartwell in 1946. This fourth and final CCA of the 2018-19 academic year will explore two films widely regarded as Churchill’s favorites and two Churchill biopics in their historical context.
