As a work-in-progress, our documentary "The True Adventures of Raoul Walsh," garnered much praise when it recently played film festivals in the U.S. and Europe. In fact, audiences fell in love with the iconoclastic, amiable, and just plain legendary director from Hollywood's Golden Age.

Walsh made Westerns, romances, comedies, musicals and gangster films, and in such classic films as "White Heat," "High Sierra" and "They Died With Their Boots On," he worked with every great star Hollywood had to offer --  Humphrey Bogart, Jimmie Cagney, Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, Ida Lupino, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Olivia DeHavilland and many, many more.

Writer-producer-director Marilyn Ann Moss raised all funds herself for the 95 minute indie documentary, which was based on her biography,  "Raoul Walsh: The True Adventures of Hollywood's Legendary Director."  It has been her dream to get the life story of this incredible man onto the screen.

But her initial seed money has gone only so far, and now we're raising funds to finish the documentary -- money which will go for sound and color correction.

We want film-goers (especially younger audiences) around the world to know about Raoul Walsh, who, after all, was one of Hollywood's greatest directors.  His story is the story of Hollywood itself -- his career spanned the golden decades of Hollywood filmmaking, from the silents in the 1910s to the CinemaScope epics of the 1950s .

He rode with Pancho Villa to make a movie on that hero of the Mexican Revolution; he took a film crew and wagon trains through the hazardous Northwest Passage to film "The Big Trail" in 1929 (discovering John Wayne along the way) -- in five different languages and in 70mm; made a star of Humphrey Bogart and discovered Rock Hudson.

When you Join the Adventures of Raoul Walsh, you'll be furthering film education and adding important information to the history of film. And, you'll see your name in lights: every contributor will have their name in the film's credits.
