The Carpetbaggers 1964

by Youtube Movie Post

The Carpetbaggers ~ George Peppard plays a hard-driven industrialist more than a little reminiscent of Howard Hughes. While he builds airplanes, directs movies and breaks hearts, his friends and lovers try to reach his human side, and find that it’s an uphill battle.The film’s title is a metaphor for self-promoting tycoons who perform quick financial takeovers, impose dictatorial controls for short-term profits, then move on to greener pastures.

Director: Edward Dmytryk  ~  Writers: Harold Robbins, John Michael Hayes
Actors: George Peppard, Alan Ladd, Robert Cummings, Martha Hyer, Elizabeth Ashley
