Daniel Eagan first became interested in film when his father let him use the family’s 8mm camera and projector. In college he shot and edited 16mm documentaries, worked as a projectionist, and programmed repertory screenings. He worked as a production assistant on both Hollywood and independent features, and in story and budget departments for Warner Bros., MGM, and other studios. He edited two editions of HBO’s Guide to Movies on Videocassette and Cable TV (HarperCollins), and edited and contributed articles to MGM: When the Lion Roars (Turner Publishing). His writing has appeared in The Nation, The Hollywood Reporter, Film Journal International, and other outlets. For Continuum Press, Mr. Eagan wrote America’s Film Legacy: The Authoritative Guide to the Landmark Movies in the National Film Registry and its companion volume, America’s Film Legacy 2009–2010: A Viewer’s Guide to the 50 Landmark Movies Added to the National Film Registry in 2009/2010.
Along with his wife Melissa, Mr. Eagan edits Adirondack Peeks, the magazine of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers. They are members of the NE111.
