Hollywood legend just said her final goodbye, I wasn’t expecting this at all. RIP
She was one of the most respected and well-known producers in the industry. The beautiful Emmy Winner, Marilyn Hall, has died at age 90.
Hall spent decades in the industry as a writer and producer. Her talent was one of a kind, mostly because of the strength that she showed.
She was from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and her first gig was starring and writing radio dramas for the CBC. Little did she know that it would launch her career into something huge and she would soon be one of the greats.
A couple of her most famous pieces include Love, American Style and the 1975 ABC special Lights, Camera, Monty. This woman was not your average female producer. She went above and beyond to fight for her career and it landed her two Emmy winners: the 1982 TV movie A Woman Called Golda starring Ingrid Bergman and Leonard Nimoy and 1985’s Do You Remember Love?
Hall was also known as a philanthropist. She worked for Brandeis University, the Jewish Welfare Fund and Tel Aviv University, where she made documentary films. “She also supported the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and developed programs for the Julia Ann Singer Child Care Center, Guardians of Courage, Israel Bonds, Tel Aviv University, the Jewish Home for the Aging and Variety Clubs International, where she served as a board member while also writing and producing its International Humanitarian Award event.”
The Celebrity Kosher Cookbook, was another that she wrote on top of writing book reviews for the Los Angeles Times.
She was married to her longtime husband for 70 years at the time of her death. The beautiful writer is survived by Monty Hall, whom she married in September 1947; her children, Joanna Gleason (Chris Sarandon), Richard Hall and Sharon Hall (Todd Ellis Kessler); and grandchildren Aaron David Gleason, Mikka Tokuda-Hall, Maggie Tokuda-Hall, Jack Kessler and Levi Kessler.
Prayers for the family.
