"His Way" and "Behind the Candelabra"
Back-to-Back Presentations Begin
Sunday, July 12 at 5:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO Signature

            The 2011 documentary "His Way," presented at 5:00 p.m., chronicles the five-decade career of the trailblazing Hollywood producer and talent manager, Jerry Weintraub.  The Brooklyn native rose to become a legend in the entertainment industry, from promoting Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, to producing the blockbuster “Ocean’s Eleven” film and its smash sequels.  In addition to interviews with Weintraub and his family, the film also features such notables as Barbara Bush, George Bush, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Bruce Willis.

            Executive produced by Weintraub, the 2013 HBO Films drama "Behind the Candelabra," presented at 6:30 p.m., stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in a behind-the-scenes look at the tempestuous relationship between legendary entertainer Liberace and Scott Thorson, his younger live-in lover. The film won 11 Emmys®, the most of any program that year, including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie; Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie (Michael Douglas); and Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special (Steven Soderbergh).
