Fifty years after its initial television broadcast on NBC’s “Sunday Showcase,” KOCH Vision and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation proudly present the historic DVD debut of Budd Schulberg’s scathing Hollywood drama WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? – directed by Academy Award®-winner Delbert Mann (Marty).

Starring Tony award-winning actor Larry Blyden (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) as the infamous “Sammy Glick” and supplemented by newly-recorded audio commentary with co-stars Barbara Rush and Dina Merrill as well as an exclusive interview with author and screenwriter Budd Schulberg, WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? arrives in stores for the first time ever on February 10 - you can buy it direct here.
