The fascinating rise, fall and rise again of legendary producer Robert Evans. This is one life story you’ll never forget: a kid actor in New york on radio plays…popularizing “women in pants” at Evan-Picone…being discovered poolside at the Beverly Hills Hotel by Norma Shearer…becoming the first actor to ever run a motion picture studio…reviving the moribund Paramount Pictures…overseeing production of Love Story, The Godfather, Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby, The Odd Couple…marriage to golden girl Ali McGraw and birth of son Joshua…long friendships with Nicholson, Beatty, and Hoffman….disgrace and drugs…the Cotton Club scandal…self-commitment and escape from a mental institution…and an eventual triumphant return to the catbird seat. An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one least of all himself, on this legendary no-holds-barred Hollywood journey.
