    This film recounts the colorful career of the last tycoon of Hollywood’s Golden Age and explores the turbulent but creatively rewarding relationships between Spiegel and Hollywood giants John Huston, David Lean, Elia Kazan, Marlon Brando and Katherine Hepburn. 

    Sam Spiegel fled the specter of Nazi Germany in 1933 to become the most enigmatic and controversial film producer in the history of Hollywood, the equal of Selznick, Goldwyn, Zanuck and Mayer. He is the only person to win three Oscars as sole producer on a feature film, for On The Waterfront (1954), The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962).  He also produced the iconic film The African Queen with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn (1951).
     
    Spiegel was a pioneer of independent filmmaking whose movies stacked up dozens of Academy Awards. He was considered to be a storytelling producer who was passionate about the human spirit overcoming adversity, and chose complex plots that served a charismatic hero struggling against the world.  He had a refugee mentality, which fed his desire to survive irrespective of the difficulties he encountered and took great risks with producing in terms of the size of the production and its physical distance from Hollywood. For a number of years, Spiegel used SP Eagle as his professional name to avoid creditors and the authorities - he had a criminal record for passing bad cheques and, for a time, was an illegal immigrant to the US.

    Outside of his films, Bill Murray is almost always an elusive man. He hates interviews but isn't a misanthrope. He prefers to be where we don't expect him. This film will reveal the extraordinary character behind the famous actor. Discover the origin of his comedic genius, his passions, his causes...

    From Wilmette, the small town in Illinois where he grew up; to New York, where he established his fame in the Saturday Night Live; to Chicago, where he made his debut; Paris which fascinated him and Los Angeles which he hates – we will meet witnesses who will help us understand this one-off character.
    The structure will pay homage to one of his instant classics: Groundhog Day. A never ending quest with its share of humor, tenderness, mystery and nonsense.
    Each day of this film will deal with an aspect of his life from his childhood to nowadays: his personality, a place, a key moment in his career. Each day will unravel a little more of the mystery and teach us more about his life and journey. Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day wants to know everything about Andie MacDowell's tastes and avoid any mistake in hope of seducing her one day. Like him, the narrator of our film wants to take every parameter into account for the day he will finally manage to meet Bill Murray.

    For the first time, one of Hollywood’s greatest stars tells his own story, in his own words. From a childhood of poverty to global fame, Cary Grant, the ultimate self-made star, explores his own screen image and what it took to create it.

    Cary Grant is one of the most enduring icons of the Hollywood golden era. Described by the film historian and biographer David Thomson as the greatest screen actor of all time, Grant is without doubt the actor whose style as the suave and elegant man-in-the-suit has remained iconic and modern: his image is still used in advertising and inspired Don Draper in Mad Men.

Via numerous film excerpts, it follows the actor’s path right from the start. At the end of this breathtaking journey, a new vision emerges: Alain Delon, the man of 87 movies and the most handsome face in French cinema, remains a mystery.

    The word "Borsalino" today designates a felt hat. The Borsalino family brand has become a household name, like that of Tupperware, Kleenex or Walkman.

    The quality felt hat, born in a small family factory in Alessandria in the 1850s, rose in status from manufactured object to veritable international myth when the craftsmanship of a small provincial town met the Hollywood dream. This film recounts the history of the manufacture of this myth, which has close ties to the history of cinema in the early 20th century.

    And yet, behind the squeaky-clean image hides a much more tortuous career, with its moments of glory and tough times, all of which explain the longevity of a story that is still being written.

    He told you he’ll be back…and that was no true lie!
    From the 60s until today, the doc retraces the life of this American icon. It also sheds a new light on his career as it shows every step is a part of his ambitious plan.
    From bodybuilding champ to Hollywood A-lister and governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the living and breathing version of the American Dream… although he’s not American.

    Now, nearly forty years after Terminator, everyone has learned to say “Arnold Schwarzenegger”. And no one is astonished anymore. His story has travelled the globe; one of the last great legends of America– “The leaving, breathing incarnation of the American dream”, as he himself likes to put it. It is the story of a young Austrian fascinated by grandeur that became the number one bodybuilder, the number one Hollywood actor, and the governor of California. Most importantly, it is the story of uncommon drive: that of a self-made man who knew how to patiently mold reality into the shape of his childhood dream.
    And if this story is familiar to us today, and if nothing here astonishes us anymore, that is perhaps because the world has taken on his image.  It is perhaps because he came, like the Terminator himself, to predict our future. Today, bodybuilding has become common practice, newspapers continuously talk of our cyborg future, Donald Trump is in the White House and reality seems to have turned irreversibly into a spectacle. The story of Arnold Schwarzenegger is also our own: that of an era governed by the law of images, more fascinated than ever by the cult of ambition, impatient to be done with humanity in order to finally replace it with the reign of the machines.
    So it is time, now that Schwarzenegger is over 70 and no longer looks much like a cyborg, to tell the story of the making of this legend that can speak volumes of our dreams, and also our nightmares.

    No one can resist his killer smile. With his immediately recognizable physique, Jack Nicholson is a far cry from the Californian playboy, at once undeniably sexy, yet singularly scary... How did this common young man become the icon of counterculture overnight? (4K/UHD)

    His sharp eye and arched brow give his disarming magnetism a hint of menace, as if he might go for your throat at any moment with a howl of Machiavellian laughter. In a Hollywood career spanning more than 50 years, Nicholson has conquered everyone, becoming the archetypal star who lives according to his own rules.

    With more than 60 movie credits to his name, and having worked with many of the best directors, from Roman Polanski to Stanley Kubrick, Elia Kazan, Michelangelo Antonioni and Martin Scorsese, Jack Nicholson has helped to redefine the notion of actor and remodel the American cinema landscape. Unmoved by critical approval, polemic, or convention, Nicholson remains the most elusive of American actors. For more than five decades, he has hauled his frame through Hollywood like a predator stalking the jungle, always on the alert, never satisfied, and fiercely free.

    With the “Wages of Fear”, “Diabolique” and “Quay of the Goldsmiths”, Henri-Georges Clouzot is revealed as a master of suspense, turning human neuroses into a breath taking spectacle.

    Although he influenced many major contemporary film-makers (Friedkin, Spielberg), Clouzot has been overlooked in France. Yet, he is a true author, with a unique vision of the world, bringing together successfully the French art of character analysis and the American art of great spectacle.
    By looking more closely at the romanesque side of his work, one discovers an elusive man,  an inventive Jack-of-all-trades. Henri-Georges Clouzot’s portrait reveals a man of vision, an agitator, an artist in opposition to the system.

    Dennis Berry revisits the story of her memories with Jean-Luc Godard and the great directors she knew, her memorable meeting with Serge Gainsbourg, and also, more recently, her singer career.
    With a gaze halfway between mischief and severity, the New Wave's Danish muse embodied a new feminity – deeply linked with women's liberation.

    The bicentenary of its publication will allow a wide public to explore the novel and discover its extraordinary modernity two centuries after it first appeared.
