Aaron Spelling: A Retrospective of Prime-Time Success


This major exhibition, following the life and career of award-winning television and film producer Aaron Spelling, was taken from his personal archive located at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center. The exhibition began with photographs from Aaron Spelling's childhood, growing up in Dallas, Texas, through his military service during World War II, his subsequent graduation from Southern Methodist University, and his entry into the world of Hollywood.

A large number of Mr. Spelling's honors and awards were included in the exhibition, such as the Scopus Award from the American Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Britannia Award, NAACP Image Awards, Golden Globes, People's Choice Awards and the Fulfillment Fund's "Courage to Dream" Award honoring both Candy and Aaron Spelling, to name but a few.

The exhibition was completed with a number of finely leather-bound television and film scripts from Aaron Spelling's home library.

This exhibition is no longer on display.
