The new movie "The Butler" hits theatres this weekend with an all star cast including Forrest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, Jane Fonda, James Marsden and many more. It's the story of an African-American butler (Whitaker) who lives through some of history's most turbulent times while serving seven presidents.
The movie itself, directed by Lee Daniels ("Precious") was inspired by the real life story of Eugene Allen - a white house butler from 1952 - 1986. He served eight presidents during that time and even shared a birthday with President Gerald Ford (and joined in on Ford's White House birthday celebrations).
Watch the video for the "Reel Story" of Eugene Allen ... "The Butler" is now in theatres.
