The Hollywood Dictionary (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Whether you're a mogul, tyro, or non-pro, you'll never make prexy at either the indies or a conglom if you're n.s.g. at the lingo. Don't risk being nixed! Have them mitting your socko vocab at the next pour or power confab! Not sure what this means? Then you need "The Hollywood Dictionary", where you'll find nearly 200 time-honoured terms coined or made famous in the pages of Variety, the rag of record for moguls, exhibs, cleffers, hoofers, thesps, and scribes for 100 years. Hilariously inked by Variety's Executive Editor and "Reel Life" columnist Timothy M. Gray, with original illustrations by J.C. Suares, "The Hollywood Dictionary" is the gotta-have-it guidebook for today's jaded movers and tomorrow's starry-eyed shakers. Don't leave for the coast without it!

TIMOTHY M. GRAY has worked at Variety for two decades, writing the "Reel Life" column (skewering the lunacy and excesses of showbiz), and covering such events as the Academy Awards and the Cannes Film Festival. He also works behind the scenes, editing and coming up with some of Variety's more memorable (and shameless) headlines. He injects wit into stories whenever possible, and half-wit when not possible.
