How does Hollywood view the institution of marriage? Tonight on Inquiry, my guest is Jeanine Basinger, Chair of Film Studies at Wesleyan University and curator of the Cinema Archives there. She has written none previous books on film, and "I Do and I don't: A History of Marriage in the Movies" is an insightful, witty and thought provoking history of the evolution of marriage in the movies. Tune in for a wonderful conversation about celluloid marital bliss.

Artist and teacher BARRY VAN DUSEN returns to Inquiry to talk about his new work, his teaching, and working with Guy Tudor on the monumental Birds of Brazil. Barry has a new show up at Tower Hill Botanic Gardens, where he is the Resident Artist this year, titled BIRDS, BEASTS, AND BLOSSOMS: PAINTINGS BY BARRY VAN DUSEN. This exhibition will feature a wide range of his beautiful watercolor paintings. For directions, times and other information, go to: http://www.towerhillbg.org/

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
