(June 2014 issue)

As director of the Margaret Herrick Library at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, California, Linda Mehr is charged with collecting and preserving some of the film industry’s most valuable and cherished items. Standing in the Cecil B. DeMille Reading Room, Mehr holds one of the library’s prized possessions: director Fred Zinnemann’s shooting script for the Academy Award–winning 1953 film From Here to Eternity, filled with his handwritten production notes.
