Along the way, Cushman helped to promote a host of celebrities in motion pictures, television and nightclub entertainment, including the Three Stooges, Jane Russell, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, among others.

In this behind-the-scenes story of his fifty-year career, Cushman reveals his secret to success and how one remarkable man’s creativity and integrity helped shape the PR profession.
