In the 1970s, Robert Evans, once Robert Shapera, once a women's clothing salesman, once a part-time actor, became a notorious playboy, and one of Hollywood's most powerful producers. His credits included "The Godfather" and "Chinatown". In the 1990s, there was even a movie made about his career (you don't see that often with producers!), which, in the 2000s, was adapted into a short-lived surrealistic cartoon show on Comedy Central (you don't see that often with anyone...).
We skipped the 1980s, when Evans was convicted of cocaine trafficking. He claimed that he was only a user, not a seller, and was afraid that he will be known as "Bob 'Cocaine' Evans to my grave". Well, since he just passed, let's check out if he was right...
LA Times: "Robert Evans, producer of 'Chinatown' who saved Paramount Pictures, dies at 89." Drugs mentioned in the fourth paragraph.
Washington Post: "Robert Evans, Hollywood mogul of legendary bravado, dies at 89." Cocaine mentioned in the third paragraph.
NY Times: "Robert Evans, a maverick producer of Hollywood classics, dies at 89." Cocaine mentioned in the first paragraph.
So we guess Evans was spot on.
You know what neither of these obits mention? That he was Jewish...
