American Masters: Raúl Juliá: The World’s a Stage examines the life and career of the inspiring entertainer, Raúl Juliá. The feature documentary is a revealing portrait of the charismatic actor, who earned recognition across the world for his versatility on stage and on screen before his life was tragically cut short. From his early days on local stages in Puerto Rico to stardom on Broadway and in Hollywood, Raúl’s story is one of passion, determination, and a bit of magic – all qualities for which his performances were known. Before “diversity” was a buzzword, the man with the big personality and thick accent was able to amass a varied body of work that stands the test of time and that’s helped pave the way for many Latino actors today.

Told in his own voice through archival interviews and in the words of those who knew him best, the film traces his personal and professional journey while showcasing his groundbreaking theater performances and scenes from his cinematic career.

Raul Julia lived a bigger than life, life! You must see it to understand what I am saying. I sent this DVD to my Mom sister as they both love the theatre and Raul Julia was a master of true feeling in the parts that he played.

Review by Ronnie G. on 04/23/21 review stating Loved the Documentary.
I grew up in the 1990s watching alot of Mr. Julias films. I knew he was an amazing actor, but I didnt know much more about him other than he seemed like an amazing human being. It seems I was right. After watching this documentary I learned that he was not only an amazing person and actor, but he was so much more. Thank you PBS! Great job!
