Book - 2006
Rate this:
The formula for Hollywood success has long baffled even its greatest visionaries. Now Peter Bart, the editor-in-chief of Variety magazine and the former studio exec whose hits include The Godfather and Rosemary's Baby, presents a fascinating look at the hits that sizzle and the flops that fizzle. In Boffo, Bart reveals the backlot secrets behind the biggest hits and misses in both film and television: how movies with the biggest stars and budgets turned out to be bombs and how unknowns with no studio support overcame adversity to make cinematic history.
