View all The Bad and the Beautiful reviews
A director, an actress and a writer each explain why they never want to work with producer Jonathan Shields again. Through their stories a portrait is sketched of this man who rose from making B-movies to one of Hollywood's biggest producers by using people in order to get him to the top.
