We gave it a B

Between the Covers Moonstruck and In the Heat of the Night director Norman Jewison wanders amiably through his career.

Hollywood Dish Plenty. Judy Garland and a 15-year-old Liza gave him a private concert, while Sidney Poitier said he kept a gun under his hotel pillow while filming Night in Tennessee.

Unexpected Names Dropped Frank Sinatra, Haley Joel Osment

Bottom Line Though his book can be disjointed and repetitive, Jewison ends up as a good guy in this terrible biz.
