Movie Info

tracing the actor/director's 70 years as an entertainer: performing vaudeville as a child, helping Welles launch his Mercury Theatre Company, surviving the blacklist and directing programs during TV's explosive early years. Most recently, Lloyd was a featured actor on "St. Elsewhere" and starred in 2005's "In Her Shoes." And Lloyd, a former tennis rival of Charlie Chaplin's, still plays three times a week. Lloyd's story is one of survival, creativity and endless inspiration.

Matthew Sussman's film doesn't quite do its fascinating subject matter justice.

Captures the joy of the man as he talks about working in the '30s with stage directors like Elia Kazan and Joseph Losey, or playing tennis with Chaplin under the bright L.A. sun.
