Storyboard artist Harold and film researcher Lillian found success in both love and work in Hollywood, a place where marital and professional success can be hard to find and even harder to sustain. Often working alongside each other, Harold and Lillian Michelson contributed to some of the most beloved films from the heyday of Hollywood cinema. Harold’s knack for framing gave us some of film’s most iconic shots, and Lillian’s research lent an authenticity to the works of Mel Brooks and Francis Ford Coppola, among others. Daniel Raim catches up with Lillian Michelson, reflecting on 60 years of marriage with her late husband, and revisits their significant contributions to some of cinema’s classics. Told through interviews with Lillian, the couple’s old love letters and the words of some famous friends and colleagues, Harold and Lillian reveals a Hollywood love story that unfolded behind the scenes.
