Description: The life story of legendary Hollywood producer and studio chief Robert Evans. The first actor to ever to run a film studio, Robert Evans' film career started in 1956, at a poolside in the Beverly Hills Hotel. His good looks, charm, and overwhelming confidence captured the eye of screen legend Norma Shearer who offered him a film role. After a glamorous, but short-lived career as a movie star, Evans tried out producing. At the age of 34, with no producing credits to his name, he landed a job as chief of production at Paramount Pictures. Evans ran the studio from 1966-1974. During his tenure, he was responsible for such revolutionary films as "The Godfather", "Rosemary's Baby", "Love Story", "The Conformist", "The Odd Couple", "Harold and Maude" and "Chinatown". By the early '80s, the "Golden Boy" of Hollywood was losing his luster. After a failed marriage to Ali MacGraw, a cocaine bust, and rumored involvement with the "Cotton Club" murder, he disappeared into near-obscurity. Only through tremendous will and uncanny luck did he once again rise as "the kid who stays in the picture."
