Madam President: Remembering the Life and Legacy of Mary McCall, Jr.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Writers Guild Theater, Beverly Hills

To commemorate Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating Mary McCall, Jr., the first woman president of the Screen Writer’s Guild, one of the groups that formed the Writers Guild of America.

At this special event, we, in partnership with the University of Warwick and the WGAW’s Women Writers Committee, will screen McCall’s 1936 film CRAIG’S WIFE. Immediately following the screening, historian J.E. Smyth talks to McCall’s daughters, Sheila Benson and Mary-David Sheiner, about their mother’s life and legacy.

Refreshments will be served before the 7:30pm screening, and an exhibit curated by the WGF Archive of McCall’s work as a writer and Guild president will be on display.

This event is free with RSVP.

Tickets: $0.00
