THE FABULOUS ALAN CARR
Director: Jeffrey Schwarz, USA, 90 Minutes
Director Jeffrey Schwarz (I Am Divine, Tab Hunter: Confidential) returns with this fascinating look at Allan Carr, one of the most extravagant Hollywood figures of the 1970s and 80s. The film charts Carr’s rise from talent manager to megastar producer of Grease, before he perpetrated the box-office blunders Can’t Stop The Music and Grease 2, as well as the disastrous 1989 Academy Awards ceremony. Featuring new interviews and archival footage of Carr’s legendary parties, this portrait of a showbiz legend is both hilarious and deeply sympathetic.
