During the latter half of the 20th century, Lew Wasserman became Hollywood's premier powerbroker. As president of the MCA talent agency, and later when MCA merged with Universal Studios, Wasserman embodied a one-man replacement for the deteriorating studio system. Documentary filmmaker Barry Avrich explores many chapters of Wasserman's story including the rumor that he engineered Ronald Reagan's political career and discovers that even after his death at 89 in 2002, Wasserman continues to command respect… and silence.
