“Jerry Bruckheimer has crashed more cars, saved more planets and blown up more airplanes than any man alive,” says one magazine article.
Jerry Bruckheimer is the great producer behind muscle blockbusters like Armageddon, The Rock, and Pirates of the Carribean. TV hits include CSI and Amazing Race.
He came from a poor, Jewish immigrant family. His parents would bring them to the matinee every weekend, and the films became his escape from his meager childhood.
No wonder he described Hollywood like this: “We are in the transport business. We transport audiences from one place to another.”
