Publisher's Summary

How do the most glamorous people in Hollywood behave when they're not in Hollywood? They run the gamut, and Nat Segaloff followed them for 25 years. He started in the staid and stuffy - but also politically tinged and rapidly evolving - city of Boston, then picked up the trail in Los Angeles. In Screen Saver: Private Stories of Public Hollywood, he writes about the celebrities he worked with when they thought they were out of the public eye. Hear about why the job of film critic is one of the most dangerous in journalism; how Deep Throat almost got un-banned in Boston; pointers on how to lie, cheat, and steal in Hollywood; what really happens on those glitzy Hollywood press junkets; and Hollywood in transition during the last great age of American cinema.

These are the scoops about the bad, the beautiful, the boring, and the blessed as seen by the publicist who kept them out of the papers and then became the reporter who put them back in.

    "Stories from the most interesting person in the room"

    As a movie fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, because it gave me a real sense of what the movie business is like as a business— production, promotion, actor wrangling et al. It's also a lively memoir of the 1970s, when the modern American art film flowered with the rise of independent filmmakers, and how that has changed in the decades since. I know Nat Segaloff— or I thought I did— but I was fascinated to learn how broad his experience has been, and I delighted in his sprightly storytelling. I always enjoy hearing authors read their own work, if they do it well, and I think that's especially important with autobiographies. Nat is a really fine reader, and listening makes you feel like you're having a conversation with the most interesting person in the room.
