Jack Pashkovsky lived in town lit up by a thousand stars. He practiced his art anonymously and when he died at the age of 89, left behind a collection of 400 Hollywood star portraits never seen before.
A biography of powerful Hollywood agent and executive Lew Wasserman.
Of all the powerful people in the history of Hollywood, Lew Wasserman is not as well known as he probably should be. He was not an actor, not a director... he was not even one of the well-known studio heads. But he had a huge influential on movies, television and just about anyone who was a star at one point or another.
Some of the early history is a bit sketchy -- the parts about Jim Colosimo and Al Capone are highly suspect, and even Moe Dalitz may be less than accurate (though I am not a Dalitz scholar by any means). But once the Hollywood part starts, it stays on target the whole time.
