I'm From Hollywood: Special Edition
I'm From Hollywood documents gonzo performance artist Andy Kaufman's hilarious introduction into the world of big-time professional wrestling. In the years before his untimely demise, Kaufman concentrated all of his creative energy on defeating Memphis pro-wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawler, effectively ruining his own television career in the process.
This fascinating documentary follows Kaufman as he doggedly pursues Lawler, taunting him on television, threatening lawsuits, and hiring wrestling thugs, all in his bizarre and hysterically funny quest to put Lawler out of commission. Interview include Kaufman's Taxi co-stars Marilu Henner, Tony Danza, friend Bob Zmuda, legendary wrestling commentator Lance Russell and Jerry Lawler himself, all of whom speculate on whether it was all an act, or if Kaufman had truly lost his mind.
This engrossing, fall-on-the-floor funny documentary is presented with long-missing footage which has never been included on DVD.
