Synopsis

This is a compilation of interviews with motion picture crew members who worked during Hollywood's Independent Age of film and television production--basically from 1945 to 1980. A celebratory insiders' look at the Tinseltown machine, the project utilises individual interviews, with rare crew photographs to provide the back story of production challenges and solutions for some of the world's most recognised movies. The Searchers, Chinatown, The Hustler , and Bullitt (to name a few) were done by the various people included in this book. It provides not only an educational treatment of the jobs and techniques of film making but also a dose of humourous and memorable experiences from the trenches. This book was compiled by a production hand with 30 years in the biz and is full of classic Hollywood fare.
