Abstract:

This volume provides an account of American businessman Michael Eisner's (b. 1942) "outrageous, thrilling, and often self-destructive tenure as head of the Walt Disney Company." Written while Eisner was still entrenched in Disney leadership, the book does not chronicle the complete fall of the CEO/President but does show the missteps he took that eventually led to his fall. The author discusses Eisner's roles at ABC, where he developed Happy Days, and Paramount Pictures, which like his time at Disney did not end on good terms. The work describes Eisner's time at Disney, especially the film slates that he developed with Jeffrey Katzenberg. The book concludes with a discussion of the Katzenberg-Eisner breakup and the compensation dispute that emerged.

"In The Keys to the Kingdom, Kim Masters has crafted an examination of how power is acquired in Hollywood - and how that power can become self-destructive. She takes us inside the executive suites and onto the studio sets, giving us a detailed look at how decisions are made about what appears on movie and television screens."--BOOK JACKET.
