Hollywood Through the Backdoor uncovers the story of actor-writer-composer MICHAEL ST. JOHN, arriving in Hollywood, with no great expectations, just to survive. It was a time when artists of color were forced to accept any kind of demeaning role in the business. When not in a class at U.S.C., Michael found on a film set, observing and meeting stars or those who might make it happen for him. He pulled some outlandish stunts to get the job or part he wanted, but managed to garner the respect of some of the most powerful people in the entertainment industry i.e., Dan Dailey, Marlon Brando, Hedda Hopper, and so many other highly respected creative-movers in the industry, who held out their hand, giving him the necessary push needed. The Backdoor? Hell, Michael didn't care, it was an entrance!
