Bert Stern: Original Mad Man is the definitive voyage into the life and work of one of the greatest American photographers of all time.

An original Madison Avenue "mad man," Stern's images helped create modern advertising; his ground-breaking campaign for Smirnoff forever changed the industry. The iconic photos he took of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, Sophia Loren, Twiggy, and the infamous Lolita image from Kubrick's film, minted Stern - along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon - as a celebrity in his own right. Indeed, his photos from Monroe's "Last Sitting" are considered to be the ultimate images of the 20th century icon.

After marrying legendary ballet dancer and Balanchine muse Allegra Kent, the kid from Brooklyn was sitting on top of the world...until a dramatic fall from grace.

Featuring Bert Stern, Allegra Kent, Twiggy Lawson, Jerry Della Femina, Judith Crist, George Wein & more.
