The Perfect Team
THE PERFECT TEAM is a new and fascinating account of the making of ON THE BOWERY by Rogosin's son Michael, with recent and archival footage. Michael details the history of The Bowery then and now as well as Rogosin's crew, made-up of remarkable filmmakers who were not always so perfect off the set. Michael also delves into the mystery of Ray Salyer, the star who abruptly disappeared when fame and fortune started knocking on his door and was never heard from again.
THE PERFECT TEAM features two of the few filmed interviews of Lionel ever recorded; one by Russian film director Marina Goldovskaya and the other an astonishing 1956 interview on The Today Show also featuring Ray Salyer.
