What Makes Sammy Run?

What Makes Sammy Run?

Director: Delbert Mann Cast: Larry Blyden, John Forsythe, Dina Merrill



Academy Award-winning director Delbert Mann adapts author Budd Shulberg's scathing critique of the Hollywood studio system to the small screen in this drama originally aired as part of the NBC anthology series Sunday Showcase. Sammy Glick (Larry Blyden) may be an amoral hustler, but sometimes that's what it takes to make it in Hollywood. Seizing an opportunity to work his way up through the ranks, a lowly copy boy quickly gains a reputation as one of the most powerful players in town. Completely restored and remastered, the entire two-part broadcast of What Makes Sammy Run? provides a new generation the opportunity to finally experience a long lost Hollywood classic. John Forsythe, Barbara Rush, and Dina Merrill co-star.
