Armed with a limitless Rolodex and a Benedict Canyon enclave with its own disco, Allan Carr threw the Hollywood parties that defined the 1970s. As he gained entrance into the land of beach bodies and beautiful people, Allan viewed himself as decidedly un-beautiful. His weight, his health, and his sexuality all contributed to a feeling that he didn’t belong in Hollywood. So, Allan filled this void the only way he knew how – by throwing the most lavish, extravagant, and theatrical of parties.

A producer, manager, and marketing genius, Allan built his bombastic reputation amid a series of successes including the hit musical film GREASE and the Broadway sensation LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, until it all came crashing down after he produced the notorious debacle of the 1989 Academy Awards.
