Date Time
Tues 26th August 7.45pm

Dir: Mike Myers | USA | 2013 | 85 mins
Documentary

The directorial debut of Austin Powers and Wayne’s World star Mike Myers is a tribute to Shep Gordon, the Hollywood insider and entertainment industry legend, who fell into an astonishing career straight out of college after befriending Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. He managed the careers of musical legends such as Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper and Blondie, and later went on to usher in the era of celebrity chefs.

Extensive archive footage and starry interviewees including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas and Sylvester Stallone reveal behind-the-scenes gossip and insights into a charismatic, contradictory character and a quintessential Hollywood life.

_“Mike Myers pays affectionate tribute to the idiosyncratic manager behind Alice Cooper and other major music talent of the 1970s and ‘80s” _David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
