"The Apple" Movie


In Uncategorized on April 8, 2010 at 6:57 AM

Welcome to the blog for the new feature film, “The Apple”.  Based on the real life story of a man who perpetrated one of the greatest literary frauds ever about The Holocaust, Herman Rosenblat.  A man who Oprah Winfrey said had the greatest love story ever told on her show until it was ripped to shreds in one of the most sensational and controversial stories of 2009!  Was he a pathological liar motivated by greed and fame or a man trapped in his own private “Life is Beautiful” shattered by the demons of the horror he endured? A new script by Ivo Marloh tells the inside story of Herman Rosenblat told through the eyes of his real life producer Harris Salomon.  Similar to Al Pacino in the Oscar winning film “The Insider”, “The Apple” takes us inside the world of the producer and his subject as they criss cross the world in preparation for the filming of the greatest love story ever told .  How could a man who lost his mother, father and his world to The Holocaust hoodwink his producer, his wife and the planet? The answer is, “The Apple”.
