"Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon," the directorial debut of Mike Myers, is a vaudeville celebrity remembrance of mega-manager Shep Gordon by stars who might have starved without Gordon’s help. "Who was (or is) Shep Gordon?" might have been an appropriate title for all but show biz insiders, but it wouldn't have conveyed the reverence (albeit often obscene) that went into this homage/doc. Gordon shaped and saved the careers of many -- Alice Cooper, Anne Murray, Luther Vandross, Emeril Lagasse -- and even in the swarm of show-biz archaeology out there, it will be a novelty, given Gordon's longevity across the entertainment industry and the marquee friendships that have lasted. Shep Gordon was a Long Island kid who went to the University of Buffalo -- Harvey Weinstein's alma mater, in case you didn’t know -- and ended up in Los Angeles at the Landmark Motel in Hollywood. »
