 HAROLD AND LILLIAN: A Hollywood Love Story

Discover The Love & Passion That Launched Hollywood’s First & Only Privately Held Cinematic Research Library


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.

Lillian was the film industry’s premier researcher whose career spans more than 60 years providing cinematic research to hundreds of films and television series. Mentor to multiple generations of film archivists and researchers, at age 92 Lillian remains the gold standard that all other film researchers are measured by.
