Producer Sam Spiegel was the epitome of the larger than life, cigar-chomping movie tycoon. His Oscar-winning career included classics from The African Queen to On the Waterfront and Lawrence of Arabia. The makers of Rod Taylor: Pulling No Punches (GFF18) bring us the first documentary on his colourful life, telling an irresistible rags-to-riches story, profusely illustrated with clips from his finest films, archive footage and fresh interviews with the stars of Spiegel productions Nicholas and Alexandra (1971) and Betrayal (1983). A winning, fast-paced slice of Hollywood history.
