Synopsis
For Martin Scorsese, Preston Sturges was responsible for arguably the brightest comic cinema to come out of the studio system. Sturges' life was every bit as antic and unconventional as his movies: from growing up in Europe with a mother whose best friend was Isadora Duncan, to making his way among the beau monde of New York - and inventing kiss-proof lipstick along the way. This is also the story of Sturges' resistence to the Hollywood studio system that sought to pigeonhole his talent. Here was a man of creative genius and personal demons: a man of towering originality and individuality.
