Film: THE POWDER & THE GLORY
USA, 2007, 90 minutes, Documentary
Directors: Ann Carol Grossman and Arnie Reisman

THE POWDER & THE GLORY reveals the personalities behind the "make-up" of arch-rivals Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, two cultural icons who dared to develop an industry in a man's world - at a time when only performers and prostitutes wore cosmetics.  One hundred years ago, both women immigrated to the United States, starting with next to nothing, and created what is today the $150 billion global health and beauty industry.  Their competing companies defined the business of beauty, making cosmetics both newly respectable and, ultimately, indispensable. That Madame Rubinstein chose to keep her obviously Jewish name makes her triumph all the more remarkable.
