On Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Hollywood Heritage Museum present "Film's First Family: The Untold Story of the Costellos".
Author Terry Chester Shulman will present film shorts, clips and select scenes from the extensive careers of Maurice, Helene, and Dolores Costello.
Included will be Maurice's short, "The Picture Idol", (1912), and "Lulu's Doctor"(1912) which also stars both daughters who began their careers as child performers. Additional clips will feature Helene's appearance in the first all-talking film "Lights of New York" and Dolore's appearance in the 1928 epic "Noah's Ark". The sisters will also be seen together in "Show of Shows"(1928), Warner's all-star film in which many of the studio's stars made their first sound appearance. Lastly, clips from Dolores' appearance in Orson Welles' troubled classic, "The Magnificent Ambersons".
There will also be a moderated Q&A with the author followed by a book signing. Come and enjoy this rare opportunity to view these unusual films and hear about this theatre and film dynasty which, through marriage, blended with another famous theatrical and film dynasty, the Barrymores.
