Summary
  • Estranged siblings David, a depressive late-night radio talk show host, and Jason, an extroverted con man, come together when Jason drags his younger brother to a dreary Atlantic City and into a real-estate scam. Then events spiral into tragedy
  • "America's lost and found": Like the rest of America, Hollywood was ripe for revolution in the late sixties. Cinema attendance was down; what had once worked seemed broken. Enter Bob Rafelson, Bert Schneider, and Steve Blauner, who knew that what Hollywood needed was new audiences, namely young people, and that meant cultivating new talent and new ideas. Fueled by money from their invention of the superstar TV pop group the Monkees, they set off on a film-industry journey that would lead them to form BBS Productions, a company that was also a community. "King of Marvin Gardens" is one of their acclaimed films
