Season 02, Episode 06 – “Mr. Runner Up: My Life as an Oscar Bridesmaid, Part 1”
An in-depth look at Hollywood legend Jerry Wallach and his 40-year quest to win an Oscar.
A tribute to the 1968 Maysles documentary “Salesman” that followed a wearied quartet of door-to-door Bible salesmen, “Globesmen” shares a similar story about four hard-working business men trying their best to sell globes to a community of people who find them too expensive and ultimately prefer atlases. Feeling pressure from their regional manager, and dealing with the constant rejection from customers, the salesmen do anything they can to reinvent the globe as a need-to-have household item.
