Summary

Summary

A tribute to legendary casting director Marion Dougherty (1923-2011), who had an exceptional eye for talent and supplied big breaks for actors such as James Dean, Robert Duvall, Robert Redford, and Glenn Close. The film also explores how Dougherty helped change the way Hollywood cast movies as it moved away from the old studio system in the 1960s and '70s. ~ Joe Friedrich, Rovi
