Hollywood : the oral history

Basinger, Jeanine (author.). Wasson, Sam, (author.).

Summary: Gleaned from nearly three thousand interviews found in the American Film Institute's archival treasure trove, this book lets readers "listen in" on candid remarks from the biggest names in front of the camera, and the biggest personalities behind it. Basinger and Wesson have undertaken the task of digesting tens of thousands of hours of talk into a lively, funny, insightful, and authentically honest portrayal of Hollywood as seen from the inside. -- adapted from jacket
