  • Rating: NR
Miami Beach was incorporated as a city 100 years ago by a group of visionary pioneers, but it was one of them - a colorful industrialist with a knack for publicity named Carl Fisher - who was most responsible for transforming a swampy jungle into the glamorous tourist resort of today. The film chronicles this metamorphosis through the story of its forgotten protagonist.
