Blade Runners, Deer Hunters and Blowing the Bloody Doors Off : My Life in Cult Movies Paperback
One man links The Deer Hunter, Blade Runner, The Italian Job, Don't Look Now, The Wicker Man and The Man Who Fell to Earth.
Producer Michael Deeley, an urbane Englishman in Hollywood, had to fight wars to get these movies made, from defending the legendary sex scene of Don't Look Now from a disapproving Warren Beatty to seizing control of Convoy from a cocaine-ridden Sam Peckinpah.
This is a no-holds-barred look at the true stories behind some of the greatest cult movies ever made.
Blade Runners, Deer Hunters & Blowing the Bloody Doors Off is essential for any fan of cult film, British cinema, or simply of a fascinating story told well.
