The room is a blend of family, career and history. Placed among the many pictures of McRee with her husband, producer Don Granger, and their two children are photographs of her with President Reagan and President Clinton. On display are signed letters from John Hancock and President Eisenhower.

On a small coffee table in the corner is an original script for Billy Wilder’s “Some Like It Hot,” and sitting beside that is one of McRee’s five Emmy Awards.
