The Bad And The Beautiful (1952) - Kirk Douglas DVD
The Bad And The Beautiful (1952)
Appearances are everything in Hollywood. So when conniving moviemaker Jonathan Shields realizes few mourners will show up for the funeral of his equally conniving father, he knows what to do: hire extras.
Kirk Douglas gives a magnetic performance as Shields, who turns talent, charisma and ruthlessness into film success, stomping on careers and creating enemies along the way. Vincente Minelli directs this winner of five Academy Awards® that's more than a compelling insider's look at Tinseltown: it's an opportunity for buffs to guess which real-life stars and moguls inspired the roles played by Douglas, Lana Turner, Walter Pidgeon, Dick Powell, Oscar® winner Gloria Grahame and more.
