From the Author:

David Brown has produced Broadway plays,k films and television. He was educated at Stanford and Columbia School of Journalism. His film credits include the recently released Chocolat, Angela's Ashes, Deep Impact, and Kiss the Girls. He also produced A Few Good Men, and the Player, Enigma, and Along Came a Spider.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this collection of anecdotes, mostly self-congratulatory, Brown recounts stories of his partnership with Darryl Zanuck's son, Richard, in making the hugely successful films Jaws, The Sting and The Verdict , and details the team's relationships with Paul Newman and other stars. Harking back to 1937, he tells about his debut in journalism on Women's Wear Daily , followed by a career that brought him in contact with memorable public figures such as mobster boss Frank Costello and the Mafia menace Estes Kefauver; Khrushchev, Howard Hughes et al. At his pseudo-modest heights, Brown describes how Helen Gurley, after persuading him to take a third wife, became Helen Gurley Brown, author ( Sex and the Single Girl ) and formidable editor of Cosmopolitan. Notwithstanding the posturing throughout, the book's "quick cuts and slow fades" deliver the entertainment the title promises. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.
