'The Founder' paints a mixed portrait of the man who took McDonald's global
There's something quintessentially American - yet also distinctly unsavory - about the origin story of McDonald's.
As told in the new docudrama "The Founder," it's largely the story of Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a traveling milkshake-machine salesman who, in 1954, chanced upon a small San Bernardino, California, hamburger stand run by Dick and Mac McDonald (Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch). Kroc partnered with the brothers, becoming head of franchise operations, but soon grew impatient with their reluctance to embrace what Dick McDonald calls Kroc's "crass commercialism."..
