Synopsis

Jack Warner epitomized the great Hollywood studio chief. He was admired as much as he was feared, engaged in battles with some of Hollywood's greatest legends from Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney to Olivia de Havilland and Bette Davis. Under his tutelage Warner Bros. gave us some of the most memorable and iconic movies, including The Jazz Singer, Casablanca, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Damn Yankees and My Fair Lady. Warner was an astute businessman and a prodigious gambler; his footfalls known equally well in the casinos of Monte Carlo as they were in Hollywood. Jack Warner's story as told by award-winning author Daniel Alef, is the story--the history--of Hollywood and the evolution of motion pictures and television, from the days of the Nickelodeon to the present.
