Synopsis: (from the producer) “…an absorbing glimpse into the colorful life, and mysterious death, of actor Bob Crane. Handsome and charming, Crane became well known as the star of television’s hit comedy ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ (1965-1971). Capitalizing on his fame, Crane dove into the freewheeling spirit of the times with relish, having affairs with numerous women. (‘Auto Focus’ is a fascinating chronicle of American male sexual identity in the sixties and seventies.) Eventually, Crane teamed up with video technician John Carpenter to document his exploits, an association that may very well have led to his murder in a Scottsdale, Arizona motel room in 1978…”
