Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
Legendary movie producer Robert Evans narrates the story of his own tumultuous career in this cinematic version of his autobiography. As a book-on-tape, The Kid Stays in the Picture became a cult favorite, thanks to Evans's hilariously over-the-top, tough-guy narration, and that same narration is also the heart of the film. A raging yet oddly appealing egomaniac, Evans recounts a life story that feels like something dreamed up by, well, Hollywood. Evans broke into showbiz by accident when Norma Shearer spotted the good-looking youngster lounging beside a Los Angeles swimming pool. By the late 1960s, after a lackluster foray into acting, Evans had turned his attention to producing and was eventually named head of Paramount. There he became a major force in the birth of the "New Hollywood," producing such classics as Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, The Godfather, and Chinatown. Meanwhile, he lived the high life and dallied with scores of beautiful women, eventually marrying Ali MacGraw. His meteoric rise was, in the best Hollywood tradition, followed by a resounding fall -- box office failure, divorce, drug addiction, murder charges, arrest for cocaine possession -- before he eventually clawed his way back into the industry as a freelance producer. As Evans talks himself up, filmmakers Nanette Burstein and Brett Morgen supply the images, including dazzlingly manipulated still photos, archival footage, newspaper clippings, and a few too many tracking shots of Evans's empty mansion. Eschewing the gritty realism of their Oscar-nominated documentary On the Ropes, Burstein and Morgen surrender themselves to the sleazy charms of this Tinsletown maverick. Gossipy, funny, and immensely entertaining, The Kid Stays in the Picture is an exercise in blatant self-mythologizing, but considering the subject, it seems perfectly appropriate.
All Movie Guide
Since Robert Evans' fingerprints were all over everything he touched during a meteoric rise through Hollywood, it's no surprise that the film version of his autobiography was both narrated and thoroughly controlled by the colorful egomaniac. As a result, The Kid Stays in the Picture relegates directors Brett Morgen and Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes) to the role of window dressers, not the probing interpreters they might have been if filming an unauthorized piece, a la Nicholas Broomfield's Kurt & Courtney. But since there would be no movie without Evans' juicy book, and since the mogul's exhibitionism knows no bounds -- including a willingness to expose sordid rehab episodes and cast doubt upon himself -- this is an acceptable sacrifice. The result is a funny, clever entry into a rich era of film history, by way of one its most attractive and powerful figures. And what window dressing -- Morgen and Burstein adopt a vivid format for presenting the snippets of newspaper and behind-the-scenes footage that chart Evans' journey from poolside dreamer to chief of Paramount Pictures to scandalous burnout. Static still photographs burst with vitality thanks to a device that gives them a third dimension, with each picture element floating on its own plane. The collection of materials on hand indicates some pretty thorough scrounging by Morgen, Burstein and Evans. A standout is the desperate plea Evans filmed to dissuade Paramount's board of directors from closing the studio; in a trademark moment, his suave confidence utterly overcame them. Evans doesn't censor his thoughts on his industry associates, least of all the women in his life, so this is a delicious inside treat with real laughs and genuine, dissociated insight.

    The charmer or the snake?

    Evans accomplishments in the film industry are beyond dispute, the means he employed to achieve his success a bit murkier. In the main body of the film he refers to only his marriage to Ali Mc Graw among the DVD's bonus features is a video Valentine to a woman (a former Versace model) he'd recently married. The marriage lasted five months, and as part of the divorce settlement she was asking for $35,000. monthly spousal support. Just four days, prior to this review, Evans had, in Cabo San Lucas, married for the seventh (7th) time he is now 75, his bride some thirty odd years younger than he. This news was largely disregarded by the mainstream media...maybe the Kid's fading out of the picture? A must see for serious students of Hollywood history. Not five stars because the only point of view expressed is that of one man, it would have been sharper with some counterpoint.

    Great film, but I wanted more.

    I hate to be easy and give a film 5 stars, but I found The Kid Stays in the Picture very interesting and enjoyable. My only complaint is that the film isn't longer and there aren't more extras on the DVD. The extras we get are good ones, I especially liked Dustin Hoffman's speech for Evan's lifetime achievement award. I look forward to watching this DVD again, and now consider getting the book or audiobook for the 'extras.'
