Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

  • Directors: Beth Aala & Mike Myers
  • Genre(s): Documentary
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 85 min.

Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. Though he isn’t a household name, Gordon has become a beacon in the industry, beloved by the countless stars he has encountered throughout his storied career. Shep is known for managing the careers of Alice Cooper as well as stints with Blondie, Luther Vandross and Raquel Welch, among others. He even found time to invent the “Celebrity Chef.” Though the chef as star is part of the culture now, it took Shep’s imagination, and his moral outrage at how the chefs were being treated, to monetize the culinary arts into the multi-billion dollar industry it is today. Personal friends with the Dalai Lama through his philanthropic endeavors with the Tibet Fund and the guardian of four children, Gordon’s unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, his pals, including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse and more.

"Supermensch is very much a celebration. But Gordon comes across as a refreshingly candid man who feels no compulsion to varnish the truth."
- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"Slickly directed by actor Mike Myers, it intersperses Gordon's sunny reminiscences with testimony from an army of A-list clients and celebrity pals."
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Mike Myers makes his directorial debut by chronicling the fascinating life of one of Hollywood's most fabled raconteurs and charismatic talent managers."
- Jeff Albertson, Seattle Times
"Light, frenetic and anecdote-rich, it's the kind of back-patting Hollywood toast to the guy behind the guy that's breezy good fun "
- Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
