Film Screening: Jack Taylor of Beverly Hills
In a special partnership, the Revolve Film and Music Festival and the Salem College Center for Women Writers are proud to present a screening of Jack Taylor of Beverly Hills, a film about Old Hollywood glamour, on Saturday, December 6 at 7 p.m. in Shirley Recital Hall of the Salem Fine Arts Center.
In today’s prêt-a-porter world, tailors like Jack Taylor teeter on the verge of extinction. For more than 60 years, this American icon has swathed Hollywood in sartorial splendor. Cary Grant, Sid Caesar and Elvis Presley all wore his custom-made suits; during the Rat Pack era in particular, Taylor all but defined men’s fashion for the A-list. Director Cecile Leroy Beaulieu features candid interviews with avid customers and with Taylor himself as he speaks of his life as a fashion pioneer
