ABOUT THE PROJECT
A deeply moving and intimate look at storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson, highlighting unsung heroes behind a staggering number of cinema classics including THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, The Birds, The Graduate, and more.
SYNOPSIS / DESCRIPTION
Academy Award®-nominated director Daniel Raim and Executive Producer Danny DeVito (Pulp Fiction, Man on the Moon) present HAROLD AND LILLIAN: A HOLLYWOOD LOVE STORY, a fascinating and humanistic account of the romantic and creative partnership of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson—a talented couple once considered “the heart of Hollywood.”
Harold and Lillian worked on hundreds of iconic films during Hollywood’s golden age including THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE APARTMENT, THE BIRDS, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, THE GRADUATE, ROSEMARY’S BABY, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, SCARFACE, FULL METAL JACKET and 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 Coppola and others, this deeply moving documentary chronicles their remarkable relationship and two extraordinary careers spanning six decades of movie-making history.
