Guest Programmer: Gloria Steinem

Movies have a power like nothing else," says Gloria Steinem, TCM Guest Programmer for April. Growing up in Toledo, Ohio, the future journalist and political activist found filmgoing to be her "escape." Now recognized as an outstanding leader of the feminist movement, Steinem has recently published a memoir, My Life on the Road (2015), in which she documents her travels across the U.S. as an advocate for women.

Steinem's programming picks include Tony Richardson's A Taste of Honey (1961), "a very moving piece of life"; Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), which has about it a "sexuality and adventure" rare for a film of its time; Orson Welles's Mr. Arkadin (1955), with its "irresistible story" and "raft of great actors"; and Costa-Gavras's Z (1969), "a profoundly political film.
