Marsha Hunt Documentary Fund

$9,863 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 159 people in 47 months






Hi All:  Tuesday, October 17th is Marsha Hunt's 100th birthday!  If you are looking for a memorable gift to send her, please consider making a donation to our documentary fund as we try to raise funds  to get the film into a limited run in a theater in Los Angeles in February. (L.A. first, then NYC - but in need of "financial angel"  to help us get into both cities) We have a lot of costs involved in  getting the film ready for theatrical projection.

OR, If you'd like to make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION - through the 501c3 - The International Documentary Association (DONATIONS MADE THROUGH THIS PAGE ARE NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.) Here's a link where you can make a tax deductible donation online via PayPal. http://www.documentary.org/film/marsha-hunt-sweet-adversity?film_id=3094 I willl forward check on if you go through the IDA.

If you're not crazy about making donations over the internet, you can mail a check to me at 12740 Pacific Avenue #6 Los Angeles CA 90066

Marsha has led an extraordinary life. After she was unfairly blacklisted - and her career in film, television and radio came to a quiet halt, she found a new passion as a humanitarian and activist. She WAS the first Angelina Jolie. Eleanor Roosevelt was her mentor when she started supporting the United Nations Association in 1955. She gave over 50 years to the U.N going around the country talking about the specialized agencies of the UN & the good work they were doing. She was one of Hollywood's first celebrity activists. Starting with World War II, where she worked almost every Saturday night of the war at the Hollywood Canteen- and for the next seven decades, Marsha raised awareness and funds for the homeless, the hungry, those with mental illness... the list goes on. In 2017, she celebrates 82 years as an actress.

If Marsha has touched your life in ANY way, please show your gratitude by "paying it forward".

Please HONOR her life by giving WHAT you can.  Times ARE tough. if you can't give a donation, you can do your part by SHARING this with others who love Marsha.  Let's get this film into THEATERS!!

Hi All: It's been awhile since I've sent out an update on the documentary. I am still applying to film festivals for the fall and hoping for the best. Meanwhile, my next goal is to get the documentary into movie theaters in Los Angeles and New York City for a week. We need this to get the film to the next level. My next goal for the film is to produce an official MPAA film trailer. I need to raise $5000.00 to pay an editor and register the trailer with the MPAA. I am SO grateful to all who have given thusfar. PLease SHARE this update with friends and Marsha fans near and far. In honor of Marsha's upcoming 100th birthday, let's get this trailer done and somehow get the documentary into theaters. The film is SO timely. and please take a look at the video I've attached thank you all from the bottom of my heart! - roger

This story deserves to be seen. Take it from me, as the grandnephew of another who was blacklisted, this is a period of Hollywood history that should live in infamy. Not for those who were blacklisted, people of conscience and objectivity, but for those within the system who ruined hundreds if not thousands of promising careers.
