Academy AwardÂ®-nominated director Daniel Raim (The Man on Lincoln’s Nose) and Executive Producer Danny DeVito (Pulp Fiction, Man on the Moon) present Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story, a fascinating and deeply moving account of the romantic and creative partnership of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and his wife, film researcher Lillian Michelsonâ€”a talented couple once considered â€œthe heart of Hollywood.â€
Harold and Lillian worked on hundreds of iconic films during Hollywoodâ€™s golden age including The Ten Commandments, The Apartment, The Birds, Whoâ€™s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, Rosemaryâ€™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 Hollywoodâ€™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 heartfelt documentary chronicles the remarkable relationship of two extraordinary careers spanning six decades of movie-making history.
