"An intriguing glimpse at how one man managed to transform the sleepy world of modeling, circa the mid-1960s, into a star-driven enterprise of the '80s and '90s that made beautiful women into rich and famous celebrities. Chock-full of home movies, photos, appearances on Oprah and Letterman, as well as newsreel footage that takes us from the Swiss Alps in the 1950s to the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan some four decades later. A playfully retro score makes you want to grab a cocktail and start schmoozing with the best of them." - The Hollywood Reporter
