Barbarians at the Gate - VHS

VHS : Barbarians at the Gate
starring: James Garner, Jonathan Pryce
directed by: Glenn Jordan

This HBO original comedy, adapted by Larry Gelbart (Tootsie) from the book by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar, concerns one of the most compelling tales of corporate buyout madness in the go-go 1980s. James Garner plays F. Ross Johnson, CEO of RJR Nabisco. Following failed and expensive efforts to sell a smokeless cigarette to the public, Johnson decides that he's had enough of navigating around the wrath of the company's stockholders. He soon finds himself outmatched in a race for the prize with takeover king Henry Kravis (Jonathan Pryce). The ensuing battle is both bitterly funny and full of acid-tinged insights into the '80s greed.

--Tom Keogh

Dynamite seriocomedy based on the true story of the leveraged buyout of the giant conglomerate RJR-Nabisco in the greedy '80s. Scripter Larry Gelbart and director Jordan amazingly turn corporate and financial politics into the stuff of great entertainment.  more info...
