Premiere visits D.C. Holocaust Museum

WASHINGTON — Hollywood came to Washington at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum last week. ABC miniseries “Anne Frank” stars Hannah Taylor Gordon and Ben Kingsley were among those at the Thursday evening world premiere of the Touchstone Television telepic.

Walt Disney topper Michael Eisner introduced the miniseries, which bowed Sunday night and wraps tonight.

“I’ve never been an Academy Award presenter, so bear with me,” Eisner said to the audience as he thanked those behind the project. Mouse House topper made a quick exit after his intro.

Telepic, shot in Prague, was helmed by Robert Dornhelm and produced by David Kappes, both of whom were also on hand. Hans Proppe was exec producer of “Anne Frank,” which was based on Melissa Muller’s “Anne Frank: The Biography.”

Gordon plays Anne Frank; and Kingsley, Otto Frank, Anne’s father.

“I was really excited to see everyone,” Gordon said at a buffet reception following the screening.
