The Mighty Franks is the story of one family—brilliant, close, complicated—and of one woman and the power she exerted with in it. Michael Frank’s Aunt Hankie was a legendary screenwriter, and a magnetic, enthralling personality, who separated Frank from his parents and siblings, and took him under her wing. The Mighty Franks tells the story of that relationship, and how it deteriorated as Frank grew older. here, Frank sits down with his editor, Ileene Smith, to discuss his family, Hollywood, and objects that hold memories.
