"Since 1986, I've been piecing together my family history, looking for anyone I could find with Nathan's stories. The most compelling have been the workers, some who stayed 40 or more years at the place.
Not at all shy at offering opinions, they provide intimate, sometimes hilarious memories of working for Nathan whose fierce dedication was the stuff of legends.
Ultimately, Famous Nathan honors the fighting spirit of a remarkable man and his equally remarkable business. And though it is nothing like when my grandparents ran it, the original Nathan's Famous remains. As we approach the centennial of its birth-- 100 years in 2016-- I offer this personal, long-in-the-making film to my parents, grandparents, the Nathan's workers and to lovers of our great city everywhere."
