The Brothers Warner CD Jacket

The Brothers Warner, A Feature-Length Documentary by Cass Warner

“The Brothers Warner” is the intimate portrait and saga of the four Hollywood pioneers: the strategic general, Harry Warner; honest Abe; visionary Sam; and volatile Jack.
It’s the definitive story of a family who rose from immigrant poverty through personal tragedies persevering to create a major studio with a social conscience.
It’s the culmination of thirty years of research, the collection of family memorabilia and never before seen photos, speeches and home movies, as well as many personal interviews.
Due to having all these materials at hand, the film took a year to make and edit.  It’s been screened at over 35 film festivals and won several awards. It's aired on American Masters/PBS television, and is now being distributed by Warner Home Video.
