Allan Carr built his bombastic reputation producing the hit movie GREASE and Broadway sensation LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, but it all came crashing down

Armed with a limitless Rolodex and a Benedict Canyon enclave with its own disco, Carr threw the Hollywood parties that defined the 1970s. Audacious, hedonistic, almost Babylonian, Carr’s parties had two simple rules - RSVP in advance and check your inhibitions at the door. A rotund Pied Piper of the Hollywood Hills, Carr greeted partiers in a diamond-encrusted caftan with promises of stardom. His soirees unified stars young and old, conservative and liberal, gay and straight. His is a study in excess – an unfettered, uninhibited explosion of luxuriance the likes of which Hollywood had never seen. It’s a story that needs to be seen to be believed.
