On June 22nd, Cast Iron Studios hosted a screening of the Tom Donahue documentary “Casting By” at the Hollywood Theatre, as a benefit for VoteERA.org. Over 150 people turned out to show their support!
VoteERA seeks to place express equality for women in the Oregon Constitution, and supports the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the U.S. Constitution. (Did you know that 91 years after the ERA was introduced in Congress, it still hasn’t been ratified?!)
“Casting By” is a fantastic film about the legendary grande dame of casting, Marion Dougherty, who gave actors such as Glenn Close, Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight, Robert Duvall, Al Pacino and countless others their big breaks.
