Harold and Lillian

With support from Cambria Center for the Arts

Variety called this documentary “a touching valentine to the way movies really get made.” This is the true romance of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and his film researcher wife Lillian. Together they helped shape the movies from the 1940s on, but it is Harold and Lillian’s love story that will touch you. If you don’t believe us, trust the words of their Hollywood admirers such as Mel Brooks, Francis Ford Coppola, Danny DeVito and others, who all participate in this beautiful, deeply engaging salute to love. A mix of love letters, film clips, and candid conversations, this film offers a moving portrait of a marriage and a celebration of the hidden talents that help shape the films we love.
