The Kid Stays in the Picture ★★★ 2002 (R)

Documentary covers the up-and-down career and life of one-time actor and ‘70s-super film producer Robert Evans. Evans narrates the film memoir that is taken from his 1994 autobiography—so don't expect objectivity (or, necessarily, accuracy). Evans discusses not only his career but his marriages, romances, drug problems, involvement in a murder investigation, and his rise-fall-rise life. 93m/C VHS, DVD . USD: Brett Morgen, Nanette Burstein; W: Brett Morgen; C: John Bailey; M: Jeff Danna; Nar: Robert Evans.
