Rating: 4/5 -- This is a fascinating insight into the Hollywood machine through terrific old footage of some iconic faces. But it's Shep himself who makes this film so engaging. Full Review

Product Description:

Celebrated SNL alumnus and AUSTIN POWERS star Mike Myers steps behind the camera for this documentary examining the life and legacy of beloved Hollywood insider Shep Gordon. A music manager whose chance run-in with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin back in 1968 led to an enduring career as a manager for the likes of Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Raquel Welch, Gordon later reinvigorated the culinary-arts industry as the driving force behind the concept of a "celebrity chef." In addition to exploring those aspects of Gordon's impressively multifaceted career, Myers' film also reveals how his subject's involvement with the Tibet Fund led to a close friendship with the Dalai Lama as a host of celebrities, including Sylvester Stallone, Emeril Lagasse, Willie Nelson, Michael Douglas, and Cooper, reflect on the man who helped to build countless careers in the entertainment industry.
