Ed Sorel: Master Illustrator


This three-case exhibition featured the original artwork from satirist and cartoonist Edward Sorel's new book, Mary Astor's Purple Diary: The Great American Sex Scandal of 1936. The book covers the life of famed actress and Maltese Falcon star Mary Astor, and her custody court case that knocked Adolf Hitler and Francisco Franco off the front pages of America's newspapers. Also displayed was one case of original material from the Mary Astor collection housed at the Gotlieb Center, which included personal photographs, production stills, biography drafts and correspondence.

This exhibition is no longer on display.
