“A fast, funny,, no-nonsense and graphic account of Paramount’s most dizzyingly high times. [Bart] may have been a studio executive, but he started out reporting. He’s a sharp-eyed reporter still.”
Edward J. Epstein, Wall Street Journal
“Readers are fortunate to have such a well-placed guide. He is not only an insightful journalist but an insider” He immersed himself in Hollywood’s curious culture of that era.”
Liz Smith, Wowowow.coma
"Perhaps the only truthful account of moviemaking in the sixties, and it is so frank and full of detail and history-as-gossip, I just couldn’t resist it.”
