Really nice biopic
12 October 2020 | by zdarovSee all my reviews

Wow, am I the first non-critic to write a review? Prime offered this up to me while I was browsing, and it didn't change my life but I'm really glad I watched it. Such an interesting man, interesting story, good interviews with people who knew him. There's a lot of great footage... but I think my favorites were Merv Griffin and Mike Douglas! Total anchors of our time growing up. I really recommend this documentary if you loved Grease, or want some more history of Hollywood's past.
