Cooper and Hemingway: The True Gen

"One of the few documentaries that captured the complex man that was my father." - Patrick Hemingway

In many ways it was the perfect match: Ernest Hemingway whose heroes personified his definition of courage--"grace under pressure"--and Gary Cooper, the man who often portrayed those characters on screen. Yet in other ways-politically, intellectually, and personally--Hemingway and Cooper were a study in contradictions.

The story of this extraordinary 20+ year friendship is the focus of this feature documentary. The film, narrated by Sam Waterson, features interviews with such Hollywood luminaries as Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston, George Plimpton, and Patricia Neal.

Join writer/director John Mulholland and producer Richard Zampella for this special screening and discussion of their film "Cooper and Hemingway: The True Gen" at the Lyric Theatre.
