HOLLYWOOD'S FAVORITE HEAVY:
BUSINESSMEN ON PRIME TIME TV

Eli Wallach, the distinguished actor, is the host of Hollywood's Favorite Heavy

Premier national broadcast on PBS: March 8, 1987.
60 minutes

Why are businessmen the "most convenient heavies" on prime time television dramas? Through clips from TV shows and interviews with some of TV's most prominent writers, producers, and stars, this documentary examines the origins of the negative stereotype and its long-term effect on the viewing public. Hosted by Eli Wallach.

Juicy and provocative.
     --The New York Times

Cheers . . . a dandy little documentary.
