Producer
    (August 28, 1945- )
    Born in New York, New York
    Director of ‘Xanadu (1980)’ and ‘Steal This Movie (2000)’
    Producer of ‘The Crooked E: The Unshredded Truth About Enron (2003),’ ‘Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism (2004)’ and ‘Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Price (2005)’
    American Film Institute Producer of the Year (2002)
    Co-founder of RDV Books (with Danny and Victor Goldberg, 2002) and Artists for Winning Without War (with Mike Farrell)
    Creator of Brave New Films; Robert Greenwald Productions; and Public Interest Productions
    His parents worked in the psychology field; brother and sister would also go on to work around shrinks.
    He is loved by the left wing and the American Civil Liberties Union.
    Many of his movie-of-the-week features – including his most successful, The Burning Bed – were, for their time, disturbing.
    He directed what was for its time one of the biggest big budget bombs of the 1980s (hint: it was Gene Kelly’s final film appearance).
    His team needed to go undercover to film the Wal-Mart movie lest they get sued.
    As a political activist – the primary inspiration for RGP – he opposed the 2003 Iraq War.
    Among his blog titles: ‘The Koch Brothers Must Have LOVED Monopoly As Kids.’
    Obviously, he had no idea what Xanadu would go on to inspire.
    He funded about half of the Wal-Mart movie himself, with investors and lower-scale companies kicking in the rest.
    Unlike Michael Moore and Morgan Spurlock, he was not one for the in-your-face style of documentary.
    His small-budget short-schedule works feature the gamut, from legends such as Gregory Peck down to relative newcomers such as Russell Crowe.
