Abstract:

Lew Wasserman started in the entertainment industry working the door at Cleveland speak-easies and rose to control a Hollywood empire. With Chicagoan Jules Stein, Wasserman became an agent, and made Music Corp. of America one of the first true media conglomerates. Wasserman's gift for perceiving industry trends long before his rivals led to MCA's creation of Universal Pictures and Universal City. Wasserman was notoriously secretive, doing no interviews and leaving behind no written materials, so the film combines research, archival images, and new interviews of Hollywood insiders to tell a great American story of power, commerce, and deal making.
