Hollywood insider documentary of both the history of Hollywood and studio giant Lew Wasserman!
20 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

CINEPHILE ALERT!!! This film shows without a doubt how Hollywood was born out of mafia management strategies, and it was 'clean' guys like Lew Wasserman who were able to use their brains, guts, and influence to make the entertainment industry legit (so to speak) despite its financial underpinnings.

Lew Wasserman did keep one troubling trait (for researchers) that he picked up from his mob associates, NEVER write anything down. That's right, somehow he ran an entire motion picture empire without writing so much as one memo, it was all kept in his head until the day he died in 2002. However, he also had a legendary temper that won't be soon forgotten by his associates, though it only erupted when things didn't go his way. As legit as appeared, he was still one of those guys who could end a labor problem on a movie set with one phone call (if you know what I mean).

Luckily for the filmmakers, there were still quite a few people that were willing to speak about THE MAN though much of the information in the film comes second-hand because people still fear Wasserman's wrath from the grave.

MUST-SEE viewing if it comes your way, and remember that Robert Evans was just a blip on the Hollywood radar compared to Lew Wasserman so if you thought "The Kid Stays in the Picture" was informative just remember that that documentary was only the tip of the Hollywood iceberg.

Check this one out, you won't regret it. Educational and entertaining or as Lettermen likes to say, "it's INFO-tainment"!
