Format: Paperback
When I read this book in the mid-1970s, it was almost

unbelievable to me that the film business, or any business,

could operate this way. I still find it hard to believe,

but there it is.

If you read this book, you'll lose much of the dangerous

belief that film is intrinsically art, which most persons

have. It will only slow you down, and keep you mystified.

Movies are mass-produced entertainment, and this book will

tell you how to get a toehold in what must be the most

cut-throat business anywhere.

If you want in, read this book. If you still want in,

you're well on your way.

Read this book before you even CONSIDER working in the film business. Everything Bayer says is as true today as when he first wrote it. This book belongs in every filmmaker's library.

I spent most of my life in filmmaking, and wish I had read this book when it first came out. Although written before the digital revolution, it is still painfully accurate, and I highly recommend it to the many, many young people who hope the motion picture business will be glamorous and fun. As Bette Davis memorably said, you are in for a bumpy ride; at least this book will help you keep your eyes open.

I read this book in 1979 and have since spent over 20 years in the movie business seeing if the information is true. It is. But no one wants to confront it because they think the playing field is level or that they will be the chosen one, or, or, or ad nausium. For more details read "The Feature Film Distribution Deal" by John W. Cones, Esq. You will come to see the film business for what it is and learn ways to correct it, before it completely polutes, or destroys, Western culture.
