"Marsha Hunt's Sweet Adversity"
Film Synopsis: In 1935, 17-year old aspiring actress Marsha Hunt (from New York City) was discovered in Hollywood. She signed with Paramount Pictures and went on to a flourishing career at MGM. She made 54 films in 17 years before a series of unfortunate events led to her being unfairly blacklisted. After the blacklist, she championed humanitarian causes, forging a career as one of Hollywoods first celebrity activists. As far back as 1955, she worked tirelessly alongside her mentor, Eleanor Roosevelt, to support the work that the United Nations Association was accomplishing in the U.S. At age 100, Marsha continues to fight for causes she believes in. This film is a call to action for activists of all ages.
In honor of Marsha Hunt's 101st birthday on October 17th, this New York premiere of the documentary is a benefit for Red Nose Day, a program of Comic Relief USA, dedicated to ending child poverty. For more information, visit and follow @RedNoseDayUSA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Doors open at 1:00 p.m. The film starts promptly at 1:45 p.m.
