Chicago Sneak Preview Premier - "The Heiress and her Chateau"
The history of the Chateau is like a real-life fairy tale with a twist, with the chateau in the role of an enchanted magic mirror, so grand and expensive that it encouraged a dangerous hubris in those who fell under its spell.  The drama unfolds through generations of owners of Carolands as they fall into failure and near-ruin, starting with one of the richest women in the world, Harriett Pullman Carolan heiress to George M. Pullman's fortune. She commissioned the design of this 67,000 square foot, 98 room mansion in 1912, located on a huge estate in Medacino County California. The house was completed in 1916, but Harriet Pullman and her husband lived in the mansion for only 2 years. This film documents the story of the mansion from it's grand opening through years of decline and misuse. Lucklily, there is a happy ending:  the complete restoration of the Chateau concludes with the transformation of the Chateau from private family home to charitable foundation, at long last able to be preserved into the future in all it's grandeur and elegance.  Along the way, the documentary provides an insider's look at the struggles and desires of the ultra-rich in America, where even the Pullman Heiress's nearly limitless money could not guarantee that her dream would come true, yet inspired others nearly a century later, to complete the fantasy and create the architectural triumph that is Chateau Carolands today.

The documentary will be introduced by noted art and architecture historian Rolf Achilles. The film will be shown at 2:30 PM on March 30, 2014.
