Stanley Marcus Film Documentary Update
Stanley Marcus was the marketing genius behind Neiman Marcus that helped eye the talent of Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tai and Rosita Missoni among many other of the world’s best designers from the 20th century.
Updated: European filming trip funded via Kickstarter ~ thanks to all who helped!
The filmmakers are looking to travel to Europe to interview Hubert de Givenchy and Emanuel Ungaro along with the Missoni, Ferragamo and Pucci families. To do this they created a Kickstarter campaign. Presales of DVDs are assisting in the raise to make this trip possible.

Thomas E. Alexander, noted Texas author, historian and colleague of the late entrepreneur Stanley Marcus, is in the midst of filming a documentary about Stanley’s life.
I’ve helped Tom develop a funding plan, helped secure his first grant, and introduced him to The Dallas Foundation (http://bit.ly/sspFUD), which is now the project’s nonprofit partner (to receive charitable donations, via Filmanthropy Fund).
M3 Films, LLC (http://www.m3filmsllc.com/), is conducting the filming. Additional financial support is welcome; meetings with prospective donors are underway, and thus far the reception has been quite positive.
