1998 Saul Zaentz

The ex-gambler and chicken farmer who began making films at the age of 53 and went on to produce One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus and The English Patient.

Nicola Barker: Observer: 11 Jan 1998
If you've always secretly wondered what it is exactly that a good producer contributes to a film (in Zaentz's case, potloads of money, determination, independence, integrity, scariness, imagination) then this programme is a must. Honest, revealing, and beautifully filmed.
