Rate this:
This entertainment special looks at the life and career of one of Hollywood's consummate leading men, narrated with good humor by Mitch himself. His father was half Blackfoot Indian and was killed when Mitch was only two. Raised by a hardworking mother, he hit the rails at twelve and learned the harsh realities of loneliness, insecurity, danger - and declares he enjoyed them. Though he went on to the success, acclaim and wealth that are the rewards of stardom, he always remained true to himself, unwilling to play the Hollywood game. It includes interviews with family members and colleagues like Polly Bergen, Edward Dmytryk, Jane Greer, Deborah Kerr, Ali MacGraw, Sarah Miles, Chris and John Mitchum, Sydney Pollack and Jane Russell. Also included are clips from The Story Of G.I. Joe, Crossfire, Night Of The Hunter, The Sundowners, Ryan's Daughter, The Yakuza, Farewell, My Lovely, The Friends Of Eddie Coyle, and others, plus never-before-seen family photographs and home movies.
