The Kid Stays In the Picture is a nicely produced almost “autobiography” of film producer/actor Robert Evans, a major player in Paramount in the 1970’s. Evans narrates his own story in his odd voice (which I think was effected by a stroke a couple years before), and I read that the voice over came directly from his book-on-tape of the autobiography that this film was adapted from. If that is true, it’s a clever conceit that works for the film.

  1. I loved this one. The sentimental feel made it so personal and important, at least to the guy the film was about. I love these insider, successful, powerful guys that open up to tell their life story as it all comes to an end. Imparting such information of an industry that I have no clue about.
