The Kid Stays in the Picture

kidFunny, engaging, innovative documentary. Robert Evans wrote an autobiography, and recorded his own book-on-tape. The book-on-tape, in which Evans delightfully reads his gravelly patter, became a Hollywood cult obsession. I listened to it circa 1995, and really enjoyed it. The movie was inspired by the book-on-tape, and the narration for the movie is taken directly from it. (Kendall Square Cinema)
