Film: The kid continues to stay in the picture.

If you have an iota of interest in producing a film some day or dream about running a major Hollywood studio, you must see the documentary, THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE.

The “kid” is Robert Evans—one of the most influential, infamous and industrious Hollywood producers alive. Let’s just say if you can persuade Henry Kissinger (U.S. Secretary of State during the Nixon and Ford administrations) to attend the premiere of THE GODFATHER (1972) instead of tending to integral U.S. Foreign policy affairs, you’re the sh-t.

From L to R: Actress Ali MacGraw, Robert Evans and U.S. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger at the premiere party for THE GODFATHER in 1972. (Evans was head of production for Paramount Pictures during this time).

Now 81 years old, Evan's is still holding his own on the Hollywood lots with two films slated for release in the next two years.
