The memoirs of cult filmmaker Richard Fleischer
A book by Richard Fleischer
Translated by Julien Guérif
A Marest Publisher edition
After going through RKO Pathé News, Richard Fleischer began his career as a filmmaker with Child of Divorce . He continued with several low-budget films and directed The Enigma of the Chicago Express , a nugget of film noir which was to earn him his stripes for bigger productions, but the studio was bought by Howard Hughes, who had other projects for him...
The memoirs of Richard Fleischer , for the first time translated into French, are a portrait of Hollywood (of its moguls, Disney, Hughes, Zanuck etc. and its stars, John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, Juliette Greco etc.) sometimes acid, often funny and enthusiastic. Surviving Hollywood with such egos is no picnic, but Fleischer, come hell or high water, holds the helm. His career spans four decades and leaves us with many masterpieces.
