The granddaughter of legendary Hollywood actor Robert Mitchum features in the new #metoo documentary “Rocking the Couch”.
Former actress turned chef Carrie Mitchum – best known for her role as Donna Logan on long-running soap The Bold & The Beautiful – says because of who her grandfather was, nobody messed with her – but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t well aware of the Hollywood casting couch.
Check out a new clip of Carrie in the documentary, directed by Minh Collins and produced by soap star Andrea Evans, now available from Avail Films, in which she talks about confronting a “big action movie producer” about giving film roles to girls who’ll sleep with him.
One of the most important releases of the year, ROCKING THE COUCH, now available On Demand from Avail Films.
Hollywood titans, Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, have been brought to their knees by the #MeToo movement. But they did not invent Casting Couch. The term casting couch has existed for decades. But in 1992, a case against talent agent, Wallace Kaye, was brought to court by 12 unknown actresses, who braved the loss of their careers, their privacy, and their Hollywood dreams. They stepped forward, despite the advice of their union, and brought the case to the police. Against all odds, they won, and no one listened.
Our documentary explores the case and asks, “Why didn’t we hear about this?” More importantly, why didn’t Hollywood learn from this case? For, if they had, maybe the Cosbys and the Weinsteins would have learned as well, and these sexual exploitations could have been prevented.
“Those who ignore history are bound to repeat it.”
