The Kid Stays In The Picture

The Kid Stays In The Picture (2002) tells Robert Evans‘ own story of his rise and fall as the head of production at Paramount Pictures, which during his tenure, produced such classic films as Rosemary’s Baby, Harold and Maude, and The Godfather. Based on his autobiography, it’s a self-congratulatory, innovative, and fascinating look at a Hollywood insider. After a disastrous decade in the 1980s, including a drug bust and rumours linking him to a murder, Evans is producing again, most recently for the successful romantic comedy How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.

The best part of the film, shown during the end credits, is a 1976 clip of Dustin Hoffman doing a spot-on imitation of Evans. Hilarious.
