An anthology of anecdotes from a century of movie backstories, covering all genres from action to horror, erotica to cult and romance to drama. Well-kept secrets, legends and backstage folklore from the movie-making experience are collected in an ebook companion to the home theatre experience.
The famous director who roughed up a death row inmate during a prison interview to get the emotional reaction he wanted | the Disney movie into which was inserted an image from Playboy magazine forcing a VHS recall | the model for a company whose logo was "99 & 44/100% Pure" who made a fortune as a porn star. These and dozens of other choice movie-making anecdotes comprise Film Tales, a genre by genre tour through the secret history of Hollywood backstory folklore.
Famous directors, actors, movies and critics feature in this compendium of movie stories, making Film Tales the ideal ebook companion for home theatre buffs in the digital age and faced with an array of viewing choices. Comprehensively researched and organized into easy to access chapters, Hollywood history has never been as accessible and as infotaining as it is here and now.
