Barry Avrich a self-made, Montreal-born film producer/director, flamboyant advertising executive, and legendary biographer and connector of moguls and stars.

Go behind the scenes on his most provocative films like The Last Mogul, Unauthorized, and Filthy Gorgeous and follow Barry as he moves from the power rooms of Hollywood to the launches of incredible brands while hanging around with royalty, rogues, clients, and confidants.An extraordinary raconteur, Barry spares no one, least of all himself, as he details his extraordinary relationships and encounters with everyone from Frank Sinatra, Quincy Jones, and Vanity Fair columnist Dominick Dunne to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.Moguls, Monsters and Madmen is a sharp and witty exposé of show business and notorious characters.
