143. Six Degrees of Robert Evans | The Kid and The Cotton Club Murder

This week in our continuing journey of the Six Degrees of Robert Evans, we take The Kid into the fabulous 1980s, which weren’t quite so fabulous at all for him. Busted for a cocaine possession, and his reputation ruined, Evans is then fueled with an obsession of bringing The Cotton Club to the screen. That is all before the murder of Roy Radin in 1983, which connects into it all, although it will take almost a decade to see justice for that crime, and Robert’s name to be cleared.
