Michael J. Fox walks on sunshine at the apex of his career success (1987) in this Herbert Ross produced and directed comedy.
Ross brings his prolific success from stage, opera, ballet, movies, and TV to this fun, frolicking and much-improved non-musical update of the 1960's Broadway and movie classic 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying'.
Herb is true Hollywood legend who over 40 years, worked with some of the greatest (Ray Stark, Neil Simon, Woody Allen, Mike Nichols, Vivien Leigh, Barbara Streisand, Baryshnikov, Shirley MacLaine, Anne Bancroft, Tom Skerritt, Liz Taylor, Peter O'Toole, Jerry Lewis, Milton Berle, Steve Allen, Steve Martin, Richard Dreyfus, Kevin Bacon, Goldie Hawn, Dolly Pardon, Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Olivia Dukakis, Sam Shephard, Michael J. Fox, and many more).
Few can compare to his Rennaisance-Man performing arts background as dancer, actor, choreographer, director and producer. Movies and/or plays he directed and/or choreographed include another 80's classic 'Footloose' as well as The Turning Point, The Goodbye Girl, Play It Again Sam, Protocol, California Suite, Nininski, The Seven Percent Solution, Funny Girl, Funny Lady, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Owl And The Pussycat, Who's Afraid Of Virginia Wolf, Inside Daisy Clover, Goodbye Mr. Chips, The Sunshine Boys, Max Dugan Returns, I Ought To Be In Pictures, Pennies From Heaven, My Blue Heaven, True Colors, Steel Magnolias, Boys On The Side, and more.
But 'The Secret Of My Success' is all about Michael J. Fox, and Ross choreographs a non-stop comedy romp through the corporate take-over era of the 1980's, that showcases Michael's comedic acting style - an absolute must-see film for any MJ Fox fan.
