Stephen Simon: Bringing Back the Old Hollywood
During the entire month of November (2018), Movie Addict Headquarters is presenting an ON DEMAND interview with legendary producer Stephen Simon, whose acclaimed movies include Somewhere in Time and What Dreams May Come. During this vintage episode, Simon talks about uplifting films and his wonderful book Bringing Back the Old Hollywood, Simonís other books are Spiritual Cinema and The Force Is With You, which explores over 70 movies that deal with such important topics as the nature of love, the meaning of life and death, the concept of time and space, and the visions of our future.

In addition to the Academy Award Winning What Dreams May Come (starring Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr.) and the classic Somewhere in Time (starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour), Simon produced All the Right Moves (starring Tom Cruise) and served as an executive producer on fan favorite Bill and Tedís Excellent Adventure (starring Keanu Reeves).
A veteran of many years in the movie business, Simon has also produced his share of non-spiritual movies, including Smokey and the Bandit, Murder by Death and Body of Evidence. Although he still loves what he calls "popcorn movies," heís only interested now in making films with a core of inspiration or empowerment to them. To that end, he and Barnet Bain founded Metafilmics, the company responsible for What Dreams May Come (Oscar-winner for Best Visual Effects in 1999).
