This poster was designed for the documentary The Kid Stays in the Picture. The documentary was written, directed and produced by Nanette Burstein and Brett Morgen in 2002. Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair, also produced the film. The documentary was based on the 1994 autobiography by film producer Robert Evans (1930- ). Evans started his career in the film Industry as an actor, but soon knew that he wanted to be a producer. Evans is known for his work in Rosemary's Baby (1968), The Godfather I and II (1972, 1974) and Chinatown (1974). He worked for Paramount Pictures as production chief in the 60s and 70s, and with the movies mentioned he helped revive the film studio. In the 1980s his career and personal life declined after he plead guilty to cocaine trafficking, and only produced a few hit films such as How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days in 2003.
The title of the book and documentary comes from a line attributed to studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, who was defending Evans after some of the actors involved in the film The Sun Also Rises (1957) wanted Evans out of the movie. Evans is the narrator of the movie.
