The Kid Stays in the Picture
Director: Nanette Burstein, Brett Morgen
Robert Evans was/is a big shot film producer whose own life had the story arc of a trashy Hollywood flick. A pretty boy who failed as an actor but excelled as the head of Paramount Studios. He went from marrying a film star to becoming a serial divorcee, and from producing The Godfather to making turkeys like The Phantom. Cocaine was his final downfall. In this arresting documentary, which is based on Evans’ autobiography, he tells his story against old photos and news footage.
