Magnolia Films and Ironbound Films have released a trailer for the upcoming documentary Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie. The film is directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy NewBerger and features interviews with Gloria Allred, Alan M. Dershowitz, Michele Bachmann, Chris Elliott, Glenn Beck, Herman Cain, and many more. Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie is scheduled for a limited theatrical release on June 7th.
Long before O’Reilly and Beck, Morton Downey, Jr., was tearing up the talk-show format with his divisive populism. Between the fistfights, rabid audience, and Mort’s cigarette smoke always “in your face,” The Morton Downey Jr. Show was billed as “3-D television,” “rock and roll without the music.” Évocateur meditates on the hysteria that ended the ’80’s and ultimately its most notorious agitator.
