For over a half century, only one man in Hollywood had absolute power to run the town, own the unions and even control Washington. There will never be another like Lew Wasserman: The Last Mogul. A visionary who turned America’s entertainment business into an empire, Wasserman’s skill at manipulating both politicians and mafia bosses was legendary. He worked with everyone from Alfred Hitchcock to Steven Spielberg; from James Stewart to Kevin Costner and his deal making was as notorious as his temper. Ripe with candid stories of corruption, mafia scandals, political maneuvering and power brokering on an illustrious scale, The Last Mogul chronicles Wasserman’s rags-to-riches story from the mob controlled speakeasies of 1920’s Cleveland to the top of Hollywood’s A-List, right through to his notorious final days. With rare & exclusive interviews from Hollywood heavy weights Richard Zanuck, Jack Valenti, Alan Ladd Jr, Jimmy Carter and numerous others, director Barry Avrich deftly strips back the façade of a Hollywood legend to reveal the man who revolutionized the way films were made.
