Great Falls, Montana native Gerald R. Molen has been in the film business since 1957. He’s produced a long list of top Hollywood films, including Rain Man, Jurassic Park, Hook, Minority Report, Schindler’s List and many of others. At noon on Sunday, January 27th, which is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Mr. Molen will present Schindler’s List and then chair an audience Q&A following.
Mr. Molen often has a small role in the films he produces (Dr. Bruner in Rain Man, Dr. Wilhaire in Days of Thunder and Gerry Harding in Jurassic Park). His stories about his adventures in film production are the stuff of legend. Never afraid to stand up to even the biggest [headed] movie stars, he’s the consummate professional and gentleman.
The Library of Congress selected “Schindler’s List” for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2004. In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked the film 8th on its list of the 100 best American films of all time. Universal Pictures will release a restored version of “Schindler’s List” on Dec. 7 for a limited theatrical engagement to commemorate the 25th anniversary of its opening.
