“Mr. Stanley: The Merchant Prince” won best documentary at California’s 2018 La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival. Local filmmakers Mike Mullins and Miles Hargrove and producers Melina McKinnon Cain and Jason Cirone portrayed the life of the man who brought high fashion to Dallas. 

The 6-minute documentary went up against more than 80 other films. 

“Although the best documentary field was crowded this year, MR. STANLEY stood out for its outstanding conceptualization and execution,” said Fred Sweet, La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival founder and producer.

Marcus took a progressive look at both fashion and society in making a name for himself and the store. See a short trailer here. Read our last post about the film here.
