FAMOUS FACES PRODUCTIONS AWARDED
BY CHASE FILMS
FOR " FAVORITE TALENT AGENCY "
Born and raised in New York City, Paul knew as a child, his career goals
would be show biz related. Not that he would someday be a great
actor or producer, but the motion picture industry, and the entertainment
business as a whole, was and is an incredible fascination, turned into
first “real” job as he calls it was with Warner Brothers Pictures. In the
1960s, Paul was in his early 20’s.
ARTISTS PICTURES CORP. -(1967-1977)
United Artist, I remained for 10 years, as the youngest Branch Manager hired by a motion
picture company. I was just 26 at that time, and the closest person to my age
that was a Branch Manager, was twenty years my senior!".
United Artists, I distributed and used unique distribution procedures for
10 of the James Bond films, three of the four Beatles films, five films by
Woody Allen, Oscar winning films like, "In the Heat of the Night",
"Midnight Cowboy" "One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest"
and other Blockbuster films like "Fiddler on the Roof", The Pulitzer
prize winning musical, "How to Succeed in Business, Without Really
Trying" "Man of LaMancha", and countless others! I even handled
the pre-Dirty Harry Clint Eastwood "Spaghetti" Westerns for United Artist. By the
way, The Dirty Harry films wound wind up being released by my former
company, Warner Bros. Of course!
FILM SERVICES, CORP.-(1977-Present)
It was a sad day, when Paul parted company with United
Artists. It wasn’t by choice; it was by merger when the company
became MGM/UA. "I saw the writing on the wall. I felt I went as far
as I could get at UA. I had to make a change" Yet good things were about
to happen when Paul made his way to Hollywood, Hollywood, Florida, that is.
dad retired to Florida and gave me the idea of using my contacts in
the motion picture business to create a non-theatrical Film distribution
company and lease films to condos and other non-theatrical
situations" The Business blossomed as Movie Film Service was born. Paul’s
company had an average of 20 to 30 shows a night; seven days a week; 365 days a
year. This was before the days of DVDs, VHS, HBO, and cable
TV. "When I saw what was happening in electronics, I thought I should
diversify and re-invent the wheel, again!", so Paul created:
FACES PRODUCTION & ENTERTAINMENT- (1979-Present) That led Paul to" live" entertainment, booking singers and comedians,
bands and novelty acts at retirement hotels, Country Clubs, &
Condominiums. It also led to Paul’s paving the way for the
creation of celebrity look-a-likes and tribute shows for which he is a
leader. "I wanted to make shows, happen! And, I Did!"---
THEN CAME~ FAMOUS FACES MODEL & TALENT AGENCY - (1980- PRESENT)
decided to open a talent Agency, which is a SAG-(Screen-Actors-Guild)
franchised talent agency. "TODAY WE HAVE OVER 1500 ACTORS, ACTRESSES, OF
ALL AGES". Also, stunt people, and support services as well. We have
supplied talent to hundreds of commercials, motion pictures, industrials,
voice overs, etc. Famous Faces is one of the most respected talent agencies in
the country. To be sanctioned by the Screen Actors Guild, you have to be
special, and we are just that!
Levine becomes a reviewer and Critic
If that's not enough, about 10 years ago, Paul became a movie critic for
"Around-Town-News", Florida's oldest Entertainment Newspaper. Paul is
also, a Carbonell Nominator. The Carbonell Awards to Florida, is what the Tony
Awards is to New York. Paul sees the live shows and if he likes them he recommends
it to a group of judges. Then the judges vote for the best play, musical,
actors, etc. Each year the awards ceremony is held at the Broward Center for
Performing Arts. It is locally televised in Florida.

When asked if Paul has a lot on his plate, his answer to that is
priceless. "You may think I have a lot on my plate. If I think I have a
lot on my plate, then I'll just get a larger plate!"
Paul's Bright Outlook for the Future

at it this way. if it's been done, we do it. If it hasn't been done, we will
create it. The impossible is often the untried. Difficult we do right away,
Impossible, takes a little while longer!
