Longtime movie fan Keith Crocker has been speaking about film-making since 1995, when his wife invited him to give a presentation at the East Meadow Public Library where she works as a librarian.

Since then, Keith has given numerous lectures on horror, science-fiction, fantasy, musicals, comedies, and comedy actors, including the Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and W.C. Fields.

Believing Peter Lorre is an actor who deserves more attention, Keith Crocker will discuss Peter’s movies and career with the intention of encouraging the audience to seek out his work. Keith will also take questions during the presentation.
