A documentary about the life of revered press agent David Mirisch (known as "The Man with the Gold Rolodex") will soon be entering
the film festival circuit. The documentary is entitled "David Mirisch, The Man Behind the Golden Stars," directed by Marcela Mariz,
and is a co-production between Monarca Group (Anselmo Martini) and Shorebird Productions (Marcela Mariz).
David is a member of the family which founded the legendary Mirisch Film Company, the producers behind classic acclaimed
movies as "Some Like It Hot," "West Side Story," "Moby Dick," "The Pink Panther," "Fiddler on The Roof," "The Magnificent Seven, and many others.
With over a 50-year career in entertainment, David carved out a name for himself as a publicist of Hollywood's elite stars.
He discovered Farrah Fawcett in 1968 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 - Barbara Hershey, Raquel Welch, Barbara Parkins, Ellen Burstyn, Lynda Carter, Barbara Eden and Lindsay Wagner.
He was instrumental in public relation campaigns for phenomenal musicians, such as Johnny Mathis, Pat Boone, The Fifth Dimension, Perry Como,
Merv Griffin, Della Reese, and Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass.
What makes David Mirisch's story even more remarkable is his humanitarian contributions, responsible for raising over $35,000,000
for charitable organizations and nonprofits throughout the United States and in seven foreign countries, organizing more than 2,500
celebrity events and fundraisers. This documentary explores how his work illuminated so many lives in a perpetuating domino effect,
going beyond "the single drop in the ocean" theory, illustrating how one action can ultimately affect the world as a whole.
