Something's Gonna Live
Something's Gonna Live is an intimate portrait of life, death, friendship and the movies, as recalled by some of Hollywood's greatest cinema artists: renowned art directors (and pals) Robert Boyle ("North by Northwest," "The Birds"), Henry Bumstead ("To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Sting") and Albert Nozaki ("The War of the Worlds," "The Ten Commandments"), storyboard artist Harold Michelson ("The Graduate," "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"), and master cinematographers Haskell Wexler ("Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," "Medium Cool") and Conrad Hall ("In Cold Blood," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"). From snapshots, sketches, and vintage footage interwoven with interviews, we get a behind-the-scenes look at movie-making in the golden age of cinema. As we watch iconic scenes of our collective imaginations emerge from their drawings, models, matte paintings, and sets, we hear tales of Mae West, "Hitch," and DeMille in this "deeply affecting" (LA Weekly) and "unexpectedly moving" (Variety) celebration of the human stories behind the glamorous edifice of Hollywood.
