About this Project

Jack Durant was a restaurateur, ladies man, and mysterious gentleman who maintained many connections to the mafia. From the backwoods of Tennessee to the world of Vegas at the time of Bugsy and finally as the owner of his famous steakhouse, Durant is a legend and dynamic character, at once charming, powerful and dangerous. This film tells his story during one day at his restaurant.

This film is based on the works of Mabel Leo and Terry Earp about the infamous Jack Durant.
