Don's Plum[edit]

In 1995 Robb directed a film, called Don's Plum, that starred, then up and coming actors, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire.[2] Supposedly DiCaprio and Maguire agreed to star in the film if the film was never released in the USA, Robb disputed this claim. When Robb met with distributors DiCaprio and Maguire sued. The two sides settled out of court, agreeing never to show the film in the USA or Canada.[2]
