WB_hollywoodmav_dvdcoverWild Bill Hollywood Maverick, the acclaimed, award-winning documentary film, explores the life and times of the prolific American filmmaker, William A. Wellman, as well as examining the social fabric of an emerging popular culture that he was helping to construct. "Wild Bill", as he was nicknamed, forged a directing career spanning 35 years and 76 films including that of the winner for the first Best Picture Oscar for WINGS, (1927). Wellman, a daring fighter pilot seriously wounded in World War I, was not easily cowed by the brutality of this Hollywood studio system. He fought his way, often with both fists, carving out film classics such as:

  • PUBLIC ENEMY, (1931) 
  • A STAR IS BORN, (1937) 
  • NOTHING SACRED, (1937) 
  • BEAU GESTE, (1939) 
  • THE OX-BOW INCIDENT, (1943) 
  • THE STORY OF G.I. JOE, (1945) 
  • YELLOW SKY, (1945) 
  • BATTLEGROUND, (1949) 
  • THE HIGH AND MIGHTY, (1954) 

The superb documentary is highlighted by 28 interviews with icons of yesterday and today including: 

  • Robert Redford 
  • Clint Eastwood 
  • Robert Mitchum 
  • Gregory Peck 
  • Sidney Poitier 
  • Nancy Reagan 
  • Martin Scorcese 
  • Richard Widmark 
  • Robert Wise  

…. and many, many more.

 William had a picture given to him by his Father from Dad's days as a fighter pilot in World War I. Bill Jr. took a photo of himself taken on location of a CBS series pilot film, about World War I flyers., WARBIRDS, (1961). He then re-photographed the two shots into one picture. This photo was then framed and given to his father for his birthday.
