Plot Summary

Movie fans know the work of Harold and Lillian Michelson, even if they don't recognize the names. Working largely uncredited in the Hollywood system, storyboard artist Harold and film researcher Lillian left an indelible mark on classics by Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Stanley Kubrick, Roman Polanski and many more. 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 offers both a moving portrait of a marriage and a celebration of the unknown talents that help shape the films we love.

Quotes Rick Carter: It starts with Harold and Lillian being a loving couple. They truly were people that, together, created - art.
Danny DeVito: They were like two peas in a pod. They fed each other in a kind of a really great way.
Mel Brooks: They fed each other, not only their passion and their love, but they fed each other their creativity, their ideas.
Rick Carter: She was so supportive, and he was so appreciative, and then in turn so supportive, that you felt like you were watching the best of Hollywood, as it could be as a lifestyle.
Lillian Michelson: In our industry, in Hollywood, marriages don't seem to last very long. There are many reasons why. The fact that our marriage lasted sixty years is a big surprise, mostly to Harold and me and to our friends.
