Nick Davis, Competing with Idiots

THIS EVENT IS NOW VIRTUAL AND WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED ON ZOOM!

MJCCA Book Fest In Your Living Room and the National JCC Literary Consortium Present

Nick Davis, Competing with Idiots: Herman and Joe Mankiewicz, a Dual Portrait 

In Conversation with Ben Mankiewicz, Host of Turner Classic Movies
Zoom Author Talk & Q & A

A fascinating, complex dual biography of Hollywood's most dazzling—and famous—brothers, and a dark, riveting portrait of competition, love, and enmity that ultimately undid them both.

One most famous for having written Citizen Kane (with Orson Welles, as most recently portrayed in David Fincher's acclaimed Netflix film, Mank); the other, All About Eve; one, who only wrote screenplays but believed himself to be a serious playwright, slowly dying of alcoholism and disappointment; the other, a four-time Academy Award-winning director, auteur, sorcerer, and seducer of leading ladies, one of Hollywood's most literate and intelligent filmmakers.
