Film: LIQUID SMOKE, The Don Aronow Story

Category: Development

Liquid Smoke, based on the Don Aronow story, was originally written as a Men’s Vogue article. Aronow or ‘King of Powerboats’ as he became known, was known as a legendary powerboat designer and racer.  He also didn’t discriminate doing business on both sides of the law, which included the Cartel. During the 70's and 80's, with plenty of friends and foes, he became an icon: men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him. His fast life led to his tragic and still unsolved murder in 1987.
