Few would imagine that one man links Ridley Scott's visionary sci-fi classic Blade Runner; The Deer Hunter, that searing study of lives ruined by the Vietnam War; and The Italian Job, the much loved British caper that made an icon of Michael Caine. But Michael Deeley has worked with some of the toughest film-makers, and lived to tell the tale, in this frank and humorous rollercoaster-ride through the ways and wiles of getting great movies made.

You'll enjoy this book. I did. -- Sir Michael Caine This book is packed with hilarious stories... Deeley was not a run-of-the-mill producer churning out crap; he carefully nurtured engrossing films, some which are now regarded as classics. That makes this book a great read for anyone interested in the film business. -- Janet Street-Porter Colourful accounts of dealings with film-makers reflect his enthusiasm for quirky commercial cinema combined with a bulldog-like gusto for business warfare... The Blade Runner chapters are particularly illuminating and demonstrate Deeley's considerable producing skills... For lovers of books about our mysterious, impenetrable world, this is a must. This is a fascinating, British producer's insider view of the movie business.
