The Kid Stays in the Picture
Just wanted to throw out this film, which is a documentary about the life of Robert Evans, who was the head of Paramount Pictures, produced some of the best films ever made (The Godfather, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby, etc), and was a renowned womanizer. I'm not sure his game can really be emulated, because much of it was based on being highly successful and famous, but his general attitude on life is awesome...totally no nonsense business-wise but also with a great sense of humor. This guy lived. Anybody seen this flick?

No, but I recognize the title because the guy who plays Saul Goodman riffed on him, from Wikipedia:
Quote:"I thought about Robert Evans because I've listened to The Kid Stays in the Picture on CD. He's constantly switching up his cadence and his delivery. He emphasizes interesting words. He has loads of attitude in almost every line that he says. So when I rehearse the scenes alone I do my impersonation of Robert Evans to find those moments and turns. Then I go out and I do Saul.

I saw this some years ago and remember it being a very enjoyable doc. The guy was and remains a player, and is very easy on the eye and ear for all his mannerisms. And of course he's talking about the creation of some of the greatest and most legendary movies ever made. Well worth seeing.

Thing about this doc and the one about Jerry Weintraub "When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead."

Is that when these guys were down, certain people stepped in and helped them. Because they didn't shit on everyone on their way up.

I want to grow up to be Jerry Weintraub. Except for him dating that ugly chick.

RE: The Kid Stays in the Picture
Robert Evans son was my next door neighbor in West Hollywood and my good friend was Robert Evans personal assistant for many years. She was packed with stories from that house his.

With his looks long gone he was largely using his power (or what little was left of it ) to game women. He would tire quickly of them and lock them out of the house after they had "moved in". Half of her job was helping him try to game girls & cleaning up the malay that ensued after he would tire of his women. She would also have to deal with girls who were constantly trying to climb the property fence after being given their walking papers.
This guy was gaming into his geriatric years and still most likely trying to game at 84.

I read on a psych blog or something that this book was good. Apparently you can get it on tape(/mp3) read by the dude himself.

Totally unrelated to your post but related to your avatar: I think Netflix pulled Bram Stoker's Dracula from streaming, I was watching it like 2 weeks ago and went to finish it tonight and it was nowhere to be found. Fuckers.
