What: Mr. Stanley teaser screening party
Where: Home of Leslie Caron and Joe Garza
The 411: Guests gathered at Leslie Caron and Joe Garza’s Beverly Drive home to get a sneak peek at Mr. Stanley, a documentary on the legendary Stanley Marcus. The affair was done up in the spirit of a French Fortnight, with breathtaking florals, a delicious appetizer display and Moulin Rouge-inspired dancers. Produced by M3 Films LLC, Mr. Stanley is a project of the Filmanthropy Fund at the Dallas Foundation, which brings philanthropists together with filmmakers to produce and distribute socially relevant films. Before the screening, producers Mike Mullins, Jason Cirone and Melina McKinnon, along with director Miles Hargrove and actress Sheri Deterling, said a few words addressing the importance of this film that honors Mr. Stanley’s great legacy as early president and later chairman of the board of Neiman Marcus. Reps for the documentary say that distribution/viewing information is still in the works.
