“David Mirisch, The Man Behind the Golden Stars,” is a feature documentary about the life of revered press agent David Mirisch (known as “The Man with the Gold Rolodex”), whose family founded the legendary Mirisch Film Company and produced classically acclaimed movies such as “Some Like It Hot,” “West Side Story,” “Moby Dick,” and “Fiddler on The Roof.”
With over a 50-year career in entertainment, David carved out a name for himself as a key publicist for some of Hollywood’s most elite stars. He personally discovered Farrah Fawcett when she was still just a student at the University of Texas, threw infamous and lavish parties for basketball great Wilt Chamberlain, created campaigns for some of the most beautiful and talented young actresses that went on to ignite the silver screen, such as Linda Carter, Raquel Welch, and Barbara Hershey. He was instrumental in public relation campaigns for such musical legends as Johnny Mathis, Pat Boone, The 5th Dimension, and Perry Como.
The documentary exposes the “Golden Age Era” of Hollywood and what it really took to create a star then and now, and the instrumental role a publicist plays in advancing careers, especially artists just starting out in the industry.
What makes David Mirisch’s story even more remarkable is his humanitarian contributions, responsible for raising over $35 million for charitable organizations and nonprofits, organizing more than 2,500 celebrity events and fundraisers. This documentary exemplars how celebrities can harness their star power to generate awareness to unknown and worthy causes, and help touch lives in an all encompassing and perpetuating domino effect. The documentary touches on the theory that one action is not just “a single drop in the ocean,” their cumulative effect can make a positive change in the world as a whole.
