Review quote

Dennis Drabelle"The Washington Post Book World"

Biskind's devourable book is that rarity, a Hollywood expose that you can read mouth agape, slurping up scandal and titillation so fast you're in danger of choking -- without feeling ashamed of yourself. Mark Harris"Entertainment Weekly"

Peter Biskind's great, scathing, news-packed history...is one hell of an elixir -- salty with flavorsome gossip, sour with the aftertaste of misspent careers, intoxicating with one revelation after another, ...an "A." Brian Gunn"San Francisco Chronicle"

Biskind is a magician at prying revealing yarns and juicy quotes out of his subjects. And the resulting scenarios are deliciously tawdry...moments of real intelligence and grace.

Our customer reviews

This book was passed to me by a director friend of mine, being in the industry he thought it might interest me... and it certainly did. This is a book I never wanted to end. Easy Riders and Raging Bulls captures the era perfectly and the stories behind the stories are enthrawling. The effort and struggle between the end of the old hollywood and the beginning of the new hollywood directors and studios, pushing to make movies like Bonnie and Clyde, Jaws, Apocolypse Now, The Godfather and Starwars is an incredible readshow more
