“Neither history lesson or traditional biography, SOMETHING’S GONNA LIVE stands as a bittersweet love letter to some of old Hollywood’s least-heralded artisans." Variety
The Los Angeles Times Critics’ Pick 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.
Academy Award®-nominated director Daniel Raim captures the late-in-life coming together of renowned art directors (and life long friends) Robert “Bob” Boyle (North by Northwest, The Birds), Henry “Bummy” 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.
