“The Brothers Warner’ is a well-made, fascinating documentary. Cass has not only honored
her grandfather’s legacy with this work, she’s also paid homage to one of the guiding
principles of the four Warner brothers who founded the studio by producing a film that will
educate, entertain and enlighten audiences.”
– Barry Meyer, Chairman & CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment
“I was riveted by this story. It’s a wonderful, intimate, deeply interesting film
about the actual Warner brothers, illuminating the personal history behind the studio.”
– Susan Lucy, Producer of AMERICAN MASTERS on PBS
Thank you for making this film and making it available to be seen on the big screen! I think it has one of the most important messages of any film in that it deals with the responsibility of the filmmaker for the world around him. Your ancestors set a very high bar in this respect. Well done on creating a film that ensures their courage and compassion will be remembered and will inspire future generations of filmmakers..
– Michael O'Brien
Your film is deep, tangible and took the mystery of these unknown titans away for me. It successfully reflects the Everyman vulnerability in a touching and cinematic story of family. Brava!
– Adrianne Davis
“Thank you so much for one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen -- the one on your family, that preceded the final installment of the Warners 3-parter. Bravo. So moving, and so well made. And you are so lucky to have such treasured moments captured on film.
“Thanks again for such a wonderful evening of entertainment.”
– Scott Schechter
“It was elegant, moving and walked the line between art, entertainment and history - a true feat!
...Your narration, family connection and moral through-line made the piece unique and important.
I know your grandfather and all the brothers rest more peacefully after your effort.”
– Alan Adler
“What a great accomplishment! Thank you for sharing your families history.
The story kept me intrigued from start to finish.”
– Kim Brown
“I viewed your documentary yesterday and enjoyed it very much. It gave me strength to fight on as I have been scorned as your grandfather had. Not losing near as much; but being done wrong in this business has the pain of the projects and experiences lost not the money.
“Seeing your film gave me strength to carry on and search out my success.
“Great history, story and story telling through your vision. Thanks.”
– Grady Bishop
“I thought the documentary was excellent. I enjoyed it more than “The Warner Bros. Story.” There was such a nice, warm feeling to “The Brothers Warner.” Granddaughter Cass has a beautiful, beautiful voice, and made the lives of her Dad and uncles come to life. There was a lot of love in how the story was told. Cass Warner did a wonderful job.”
