    In this passionate love-hate letter to the film industry, Peter Bart pulls together his best columns from Variety and GQ, outlining in detail the history and inner workings of Hollywood. In story after story, Bart shows how the major studios have diverted their energies away from production of the shrewdly crafted pictures that once made the industry powerful.

    Overall

    In this rare tome you'll find a jack of all movie trades relic whose insider prose defines the last half of the 20th century as the end all zenith in US entertainment and pop culture. For Bart is a walking encyclopedia of talented good old days Hollywood before ageist Ivy League bean counters took over. While his most sage persona is not served well here by a cold robotic narrator and the last two hours are a study in politics and sex scandal, he gets a pass since Peter is still the Herodotus of classic Hollywood, the romantic messenger of the way we were in this town for those of us who live in the past with no apologies and no regrets.
