About This Book

One man links The Deer Hunter, Blade Runner, The Italian Job, Don't Look Now, The Wicker Man and The Man Who Fell to Earth. Oscar-winning producer Michael Deeley, an urbane Englishman in Hollywood, had to fight wars to get these movies made, from defending the legendary sex scene of Don't Look Now from a disapproving Warren Beatty to seizing control of Convoy from a cocaine-ridden Sam Peckinpah. This is a no-holds-barred look at the true stories behind some of the greatest cult movies ever made. Blade Runners, Deer Hunters & Blowing the Bloody Doors Off is essential for any fan of cult film, British cinema, or simply of a fascinating story told well.
