A recently discovered archive reveals the story of the extraordinary life of the model agent Emmeline Snively, who ran the Blue Book Model Agency in Hollywood in post-war America. Many famous models, including Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, started out at the Blue Book Model Agency and were created by Emmeline. This documentary reconstructs the way Emmeline created beauty in those days and explores what’s left of it after all these years. A film about dignity, beauty and getting older.
