3. The Devil's Candy: The Anatomy Of A Hollywood Fiasco
Author: by Julie Salamon
Da Capo Press
“A definitive portrait of the madness of big-time moviemaking” (Newsweek), now the basis for the new season of TCM’s hit podcast, “The Plot Thickens”When Brian De Palma agreed to allow Julie Salamon unlimited access to the film production of Tom Wolfe’s best-selling book The Bonfire of the Vanities, both director and journalist must have felt like they were on to something big.How could it lose?
But instead Salamon got a front-row seat at the Hollywood disaster of the decade. She shadowed the film from its early stages through the last of the eviscerating reviews, and met everyone from the actors to the technicians to the studio executives.
They’d all signed on for a blockbuster, but there was a sense of impending doom from the start-heart-of-gold characters replaced Wolfe’s satiric creations; affable Tom Hanks was cast as the patrician heel; Melanie Griffith appeared mid-shoot with new, bigger breasts.
With a keen eye and ear, Salamon shows us how the best of intentions turned into a legendary Hollywood debacle. The Devil’s Candy joins John Gregory Dunne’s The Studio, Steven Bach’s Final Cut, and William Goldman’s Adventures in the Screen Trade as a classic for anyone interested in the workings of Hollywood.

Author: by Peter Biskind
Simon & Schuster
When the low-budget biker movie Easy Rider shocked Hollywood with its success in 1969, a new Hollywood era was born. This was an age when talented young filmmakers such as Scorsese, Coppola, and Spielberg, along with a new breed of actors, including De Niro, Pacino, and Nicholson, became the powerful figures who would make such modern classics as The Godfather, Chinatown, Taxi Driver, and Jaws.
Easy Riders, Raging Bulls follows the wild ride that was Hollywood in the ’70s – an unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll (both onscreen and off) and a climate where innovation and experimentation reigned supreme. Based on hundreds of interviews with the directors themselves, producers, stars, agents, writers, studio executives, spouses, and ex-spouses, this is the full, candid story of Hollywood’s last golden age.
MARTIN SCORSESE ON DRUGS: “I did a lot of drugs because I wanted to do a lot, I wanted to push all the way to the very very end, and see if I could die.” DENNIS HOPPER ON EASY RIDER: “The cocaine problem in the United States is really because of me.

But despite its mythic reputation, much of what has happened inside the Chateau’s walls has eluded the public eyeuntil now. With wit and insight, Shawn Levy recounts the wild revelries and scandalous liaisons, the creative breakthroughs and marital breakdowns, the births and deaths to which the hotel has been a party.
Vivid, salacious, and richly informed, The Castle on Sunset is a glittering tribute to Hollywood as seen from inside the walls of its most hallowed hotel.
