Moneywood free pdf As wild and sexy and over the top as the decade author William Stadiem brings to life, "Moneywood" is the inside story of Hollywood producers in the '80s.From box office hits like "Beverly Hills Cop," "Top Gun" and "Batman" to film flops like "Heaven's Gate," "Howard the Duck" and "Leonard Part 6," Hollywood was never more excessive than it was in the 1980s. In this, the "Moneywood" era, the industry purse strings were not controlled by reasonably consenting adults but by pop culture cowboys who couldn't balance their own checkbooks. What they "could "do was sweet talk the talent, seduce the starlets, snowball the Japanese and slither out of Dodge when the low grosses trickled in. Their out of control lifestyles and know-nothing, raging narcissistic personalities make the original brutal studio heads like Sam Goldwyn and Jack Warner seem like Oxford dons. Yet, for all their entertainment flops, these Scoundrels of Spago turned movies into a Big Business that was catnip to Wall Street. They were The Producers, and they were way beyond anything Mel Brooks could dream up.The "Moneywood" cast of characters includes: -Simpson and Bruckheimer- Guber and Peters- Eisner/Katzenberg/Ovitz: the marquee teams of the era -Mario Kassar and Andy Vajna, the "Rambo" boys, who went from making wigs to making blockbusters.-David Begelman, the embezzler, gambler and sex addict who was rewarded for his sins by getting to run both Columbia and MGM.-David Puttnam The high-toned English advertising whiz who was supposed to raise the Hollywood bar, but ended up barred from Hollywood."Moneywood" is the ultimate expose of the real hit men of Hollywood's go-go decade.

About William Stadiem

WILLIAM STADIEM is the author of eight books, including the bestselling "Marilyn Monroe Confidential- Dear Senator- " and "Mister S: My Life with Frank Sinatra." A Harvard JD-MBA, he abandoned Wall Street for Sunset Boulevard, where as the screenwriter for Franco Zeffirelli's "Young Toscanini," he wrote one of the biggest flops of the 80s. As a screenwriter, a columnist for Andy Warhol's "Interview," and the restaurant critic for "Los Angeles," Stadiem has enjoyed a ringside seat for the decadence and outrageousness he recounts in "Moneywood." He lives in Santa Monica, California.
