His only redemption is his father (Paul), a recovering alcoholic who's trying to find his own peace in life.

Burt's Buzz.
Director: Jody Shapiro.
Cast: Burt Shavitz.
Where it's playing: Texas Theatre.

You may not know his full name, but you've seen Burt Shavitz' face about a million times. Back in the '70s the New York beekeeper helped create the Burt’s Bees line of products with his partner Roxanne Quimby. Despite Quimby buying Shavitz’s share of the company in the early ‘90s for just $4 million his bearded mug still graces most of the company’s products. Quimby went on to sell the company to Clorox for $173 million and the brand is now worth over a billion. As for Shavitz, though? He still chooses to live in a glorified turkey coop, because, as he says in the trailer of this documentary, “A good day is when no one shows up and you don’t have to go anywhere.” — Cory Graves
