Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story

(Daniel Raim, 2015)

“Truly charming…a terrifically moving human story!”—Vanity Fair

Don’t miss this captivating, emotional account of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson: two unsung heroes of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Although the husband-and-wife team was responsible for some of cinema’s most iconic examples of visual storytelling—including The Birds, The Graduate, Rosemary’s Baby, Fiddler on the Roof, and DePalma’s Scarface—their contributions remain largely unacknowledged. Through a mix of love letters, film clips, and candid conversations—as well as cameos by directors Mel Brooks, Francis Ford Coppola, and others—this deeply engaging documentary chronicles the couple’s remarkable romantic and creative partnership through six decades of movie-making history. (94 mins., DCP)
