Hollywood Royalty- Legendary producer Walter Mirisch!


I have proclaimed Walter Mirisch Hollywood royalty, and I’m sure no one will disagree. With a list of credits that includes, “Irma La Douce”, “Some Like It Hot” , “The Magnificent Seven”,  “The Great Escape”,”The Pink Panther”  and 3 Best Picture winners, “The Apartment”, “West Side Story” & “In the Heat of the Night”, who is going to argue? There’s only about 100 other movies that I could mention as well, and we can try to mention as many of them as possible when Mr. Mirisch makes an appearance at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica Sunday night.

He’ll be signing copies of his book, “I Thought We Were Making Movies, Not History”, before a double bill of “In the Heat of the Night” and “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and a Q & A too!

There surely is an all time favorite of yours from this man’s list of credits, so come on over to the Aero and ask him about it, or Natalie, The Duke,  Steve McQueen, Sidney Poitier or Billy Wilder, he worked with them all, and so many more!

Academy president, Thalberg & Hersholt award winner, Selznick Lifetime achievement award winner, and a guest of the American Cinematheque  Sunday night in Santa Monica.

But, he was just making movies.

Come get a book, meet a legend, and watch a couple great films! See you Sunday in Santa Monica.

If you can’t make it, order a signed copy and we’ll send it your way.
