Description:
  The Brothers Warner is an intimate portrait and epic saga of the four film pioneers who founded and ran Warner Bros. for over 50 years. This is the inside story of the little known major player in the Warner Bros. studio legend, President Harry Warner; honest Abe; visionary Sam; and volatile Jack--the original Hollywood independent filmmakers.

This close-knit band of brothers was the first to use motion pictures to “educate, entertain, and enlighten”. Their stories were often ripped from news headlines. It was Harry’s personal belief that, “Those who make a nation’s entertainment have obligations above and beyond their primary commercial objective, which is the box office.”

Their legendary scrappy rise from nothing, their overcoming of personal tragedies, and their battles are all woven together with the times they lived in. From opening their first storefront theater by hanging a sheet on the wall and borrowing chairs from a funeral parlor to creating one of the top studios in America--four brothers built an empire on a dream and revolutionized Hollywood creating the first major studio with a social conscience.
