Synopsis

A special fundraising screening in aid of Selig Court, Jewish Care's independent living scheme in Golders Green which provides care and support for people aged over 60, specifically Holocaust survivors and refugees, allowing them to maintain their independence by living in purpose-built individual apartments. A fascinating and moving account of the romantic and creative partnership of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson: two unsung heroes of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Harold and Lillian worked on hundreds of renowned films including The Ten Commandments, The Apartment, The Birds, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, Rosemary’s Baby, Fiddler On The Roof, Scarface, Full Metal Jacket and many more. Although the couple was responsible for some of Hollywood’s most iconic examples of visual storytelling, their contributions remain largely uncredited. Through an engaging mix of love letters, film clips and candid conversations with Harold and Lillian, Danny DeVito, Mel Brooks, Francis Ford Coppola and others, this deeply engaging documentary from Academy Award-nominated director Daniel Raim chronicles their remarkable marriage and extraordinary careers through six decades of movie-making history.
