  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Narrated by himself, "The Kid Stays In The Picture" is the story of movie producer Robert Evans

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits typical image quality for a documentary, with black-and-white and color footage peppered with photographs, archival footage, and scenes from Paramount pictures. Images can be sharp and nicely detailed or soft and hazy, depending on the source element. Colors can be nicely saturated or border oversaturation. Overall, this DVD capably delivers the visuals for this interesting documentary. (Suzanne Hodges)
