Publisher's Summary

TOP DOG RADIO speaks with film producer, writer, theatre director and Academy Award winner David Brown (1916 – 2010). Brown formed his own film production company in the early 1970s and went on to produce over a dozen blockbuster hits, including The Sting (1973), Jaws (1975), Cocoon (1985) and Driving Miss Daisy (1989). Saying that “every setback is an opportunity,” Brown discusses an issue important to those dreaming of starting their own business. Namely, the right time to quit where you’re at and strike out on your own.

An interview but does cover good material.

David Brown is interviewed on a show (radio I believe, based on the quality), but his answers do shed light and insight on his years in the film industry.
