This film seeks to highlight the publicly under-appreciated casting directors and to pay tribute to the one woman who evolved the position of the casting director...

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

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.

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.
