This is the rags to riches story of Cy Feuer, who, after becoming the executive officer of the Air Corps film division in World War II, teams up with the late Ernie Martin to become a legendary Broadway musical producer. Their first hit was "Where's Charley?" in 1948 featuring Ray Bolger. Next up was the smash "Guys and Dolls" which enabled them to hire Cole Porter for their next show, "Can-Can".
Feuer signed a 17-year-old Julie Andrews for her Broaway debut in "The Boyfriend", another hit. He hit the bulls-eye one more time with "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", his third collaboration with composer Frank Loesser. The first five musicals Feuer and Martin produced were hits, and at one point, all were running simultaneously on Broadway. He would later go to battle with Bob Fosse as producer of the acclamed 1973 film version of "Cabaret".
