Why is Nathan famous? Why, for Nathan's Famous, of course, the renowned franchise established by Nathan Handwerker in 1916 with a nickel-hot dog stand at Coney Island that pioneered quality fast food. Released in anticipation of the dining empire's centenary, this documentary pays tribute to Handwerker's rags-to-riches saga, profiles the workers that helped make his business a beloved institution, and delivers a kaleidoscopic portrait of a bygone era. Directed by grandson Lloyd. 86 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
