In 1932 Meher Baba traveled to Hollywood California for a week. A reception was given to him by Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford at their mansion Pickfair. Meher Baba took this opportunity to deliver a message concerning the power and spiritual potential of films. He also talked about the Great Depression and how the motion pictures could help uplift mankind during this difficult period.
The new 2017 film entitled In Every Phase Of Life includes this message as well as the longer story of Meher Baba’s trip to america in 1932
