Synopsis: In an age of legends and glamour Jack Warner reigned supreme. From humble beginnings, he and his brothers founded Warner Bros. studios. For over fifty years he held the crown, and with it made movie history—from flickering silents to wide-screen color epics. An insider’s account of the man Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart, and Bugs Bunny called “boss.”

Trailer:

Featuring archival interviews with Shirley Jones, Debbie Reynolds, Sheila MacRae, Jack Warner, Jr., Neal Gabler, Jack Warner, and many more. Narrated by Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

Lise Romanoff, CEO/Managing Director of Vision Films shares, “Gregory Orr gives audiences a special look at the man behind the myth, his grandfather, spanning over a century and from so many different vantage points.”

Filmmaker Gregory Orr adds, “We take movies and TV shows for granted now, but there was a time not long ago when the whole experience had to be invented: The stories. The stars. The studios that produced them. I wanted to capture Jack Warner and his generation as real people who built this industry, and not just as handprints in the pavement.”
