The Powder, the Glory

See it before it comes to PBS in early 2009: The Powder and the Glory, produced and directed by seasonal Menemsha resident Arnie Reisman and Ann Carol Grossman, will screen at the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center in Vineyard Haven on Sunday evening, July 20, at 7:30 p.m.

This is a 90-minute documentary on Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein, their lives, times and rivalry — how two entrepreneurial spirits turned the business world upside down a hundred years ago and how this innovative turbulence created what is today the $150 billion global health and beauty industry.

The filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions.
