For over 50 years only one man in Hollywood had the absolute power to run the town, own the unions and even control Washington. There will never be another man like him. Lew Wasserman was "The Last Mogul".
Wasserman was an empire builder and visionary who used politics, the mafia and the enduring allure of talent to first build an industry and then keep it under tight control. As Chairman and CEO of MCA and then Universal, Wasserman was the undisputed king of Hollywood. During his 59-year career at MCA he worked with everyone and defined the business of entertainment as we know it.
THE LAST MOGUL chronicles Lew Wasserman's meteoric rise to power and his tragic final days, complete with candid stories about corruption, mafia scandals, political maneuvers, power-brokering on a legendary scale and features interviews with many of the entertainment elite.
