Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob (and Sex) Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob (and Sex)

by Peter Bart

Book Reviews

"Maybe it's because I came of age with the great movies that Peter Bart brought to the screen, but I couldn't put this book down. I thought I knew a thing or two about Hollywood, and that's exactly how much I did know. Herewith, the rest."
-- Bill Maher

"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."
-- Janet Maslin, New York Times

"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."
-- Edward J. Epstein, Wall Street Journal

"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."
-- Liz Smith, Wowowow.com

"Hollywood made some great movies during this whacky period of time. Bart manages to capture it all with his droll sense of humor. I found it thoroughly enjoyable."
-- Michael Douglas
