"An effusive, sad, visually gorgeous, and illuminating portrait of the artist."
- Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"'Mad Man' presents a tantalizing overview of Stern's work as a photographer, confidently placing him among the greats in his field."
- Chris Hewitt, St. Paul Pioneer Press
Bert Stern: Original Mad Man is a revealing look at the career of original “bad-boy” photographer and cultural icon Bert Stern. After working alongside Stanley Kubrick at Look Magazine, Stern became an original Madison Avenue "mad man", his images helping to create modern advertising as well as mint the concept of photographer as "star.” From his meteoric rise during the “Golden Age of Advertising” to photographing the world’s most alluring women in fashion and Hollywood -- including Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, Liz Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe -- it seemed Stern could do no wrong, until a dramatic fall from grace. Bert Stern: Original Mad Man is a story of self-creation; rise, fall and reinvention. It explores creativity, celebrity, and desire through the eyes of a man who got everything he wanted. Almost.
