Description

This is a black and white photo of Miss Movie Girl, Mary Tilson, making a presentation to the filmmaker Louis Marcus in 1975. Tilson, wearing a long light-coloured evening dress and sash marked Movie Girl ’75, is presenting an award made from Waterford Glass to Marcus.

Born in Cork City, Marcus began his career in Dublin as assistant director on Mise Éire (George Morrison, 1959) and Saoirse? (George Morrison, 1965). His first documentary film The Silent Art (1958), on the Cork-born sculptor Séamus Murphy (1907-1975) was shown at the Cork Film Festival in 1959, with music by Bernard Geary and Declan Townsend and commentary by festival stalwart Dan Donovan. Marcus was later nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1974 for Children at Work (Páisti ag Obair), and in 1976 he was nominated for Best Live Action Short Film at the 48th Academy Awards for Conquest of Light (1976) which detailed how Waterford Glass is made with an emphasis on the aesthetic nature of the process.
