Harvey Weinstein: The Early, Vaguely Pervy Years

harvey_weinstein120.jpgIn a fascinating new essay/tribute, indie publicist extraordinaire Reid Rosefelt recounts how the Weinsteins' three-decade journey to awards-season supremacy began with a single, garish step: "They had taken the Brazilian artwork, unbuttoned the top button of Eréndira's blouse and added extra cleavage to Claudia Ohana's chest. Cleavage! I died laughing. I had never seen anything so crass. Would art filmgoers want to see the film more if they believed that Claudia had slightly bigger breasts?" Ha! Anyway, I love the smell of Weinstein mythology in the morning. [My Life as a Blog]
