Under the Radar

Casting By is perhaps an esoteric film, made by a film buff for film buffs, but that's no slight against it

Donahue makes a compelling case that publicly unsung hero Dougherty (and L.A. counterpart Lynn Stalmaster) had a profound influence on the industry.

The movie business is becoming more corporate and less personal... Recognizing and appreciating the work of casting directors may be one way to stem that tide, however briefly.

Proves a vivid reminder of the hand-in-glove importance of right actor/right role - and the indispensability of those casting mavens who helped make movie history. Good stuff.

Something of an elegy for a lost era, when talent, even at its rawest, stood far above prettiness as the primary reason for getting the part.
