Summary *Coarse Language, Nudity, Violence*The Kid Stays in the Picture traces the meteoric rise, fall and rise again of legendary Hollywood producer Robert Evans. Adapted from Evans's tell-all biography, the documentary takes the audience on an intimate journey into the mind of this Hollywood legend.Robert Evans lived the life that many of us dream of. His film career started in 1956, at the oddest of places: poolside at the Beverly Hills Hotel. His good looks, charm and overwhelming confidence captured the eye of screen legend Norma Shearer. She offered him a role in the picture Man of a Thousand Faces.After a glamorous, but short-lived, career as a movie star, Evans decided to try his hand at producing. Miraculously, 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, Evans was responsible for bringing some of the greatest films of the era to the screen, including The Godfather, Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, The Odd Couple, The Conformist, Harold and Maude, and Chinatown.By the early '80's, the 'Golden Boy' of Hollywood was losing his lust. Only through tremendous will and uncanny luck did he once again rise as 'the kid who stays in the picture'.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Directed & produced by Brett Morgan & Nanette Burstein and produced by Graydon Carter. Based on the book The Kid Stays In The Picture by Robert Evans
