Plot & Details
Frequent Good Morning America, The Today Show, and Entertainment Tonight contributor Rona Barrett serves as the subject of this documentary profile of the celebrity journalist whose innovative "coffee cliché" style has served as the blueprint for what's now considered mainstream celebrity journalism. Pursued by A-list celebrities long before the paparazzi declared open season on entertainers, Barrett is known for her unique ability to get the stars to open up as never before. In celebrity circles, her deeply personal interviews are the stuff of legend. For a long time, a surefire sign that one had finally made it in Hollywood was the day that Barrett knocked on their door with an invitation to one of her legendary parties. Clips of Barrett interviewing such popular personalities as Robin Williams, John Wayne, Burt Reynolds, Raquel Welch, and Carol Burnett give testament to the celebrity journalist's remarkable knack for getting an interesting scoop during every conversation.
