The Observer has managed to gain access to US film producer Harvey Weinstein's covert list of a total of 91 prominent actors, publicists, producers, financiers and prominent film industry players.

The document was reportedly compiled by Weinstein about five months before the October 5 publication by the New York Times of a spate of sexual harassment allegations against the Hollywood producer.
