About this title


A definitive insider’s account of the triumphs and tribulations of a legendary Hollywood film producer

“A great story about vision, tactics, egos, and filmmaking . . . a complicated portrait of a complicated man.”—Louise Bernikow, Cosmopolitan

“Gripping on every page and awash with toweringly overblown celluloid giants in rapturous megalomania.”Kirkus Reviews
“A Hollywood book that is not only well-researched and well-reasoned, but fair and entertaining in the bargain.”Inside Books

“Joins the ranks of Final Cut and Indecent Exposure as a captivating glimpse of the Hollywood most people never see.”Palm Beach Post
“A fascinating study of power in the boardrooms, bedrooms, and such watering holes as Chasen’s, Morton’s, and Trump.”Riverside Press-Enterprise
“Yule pulls no punches, and neither do Puttnam’s friends, in describing the film genius’s considerable personal flaws.”The Orlando Sentinel
Fast Fade is well-written . . . well-researched . . . and will appeal to all those curious about the recent history of the film industry.”Barron’s Weekly

From Publishers Weekly:

This biography of the Briton who produced Midnight Express and Chariots of Fire falls into two sharply divided sections: the first details David Puttnam's rise to the top of England's movie industry amid feelings that he was the hope of his nation's flagging film business, while the second describes his year as the head of Columbia Pictures in Hollywood and the disaster which overtook him there. British journalist Yule ( Hollywood-a-Go-Go ) traces his subject's struggle to make quality pictures in his early years, pictures based principally on moral dilemmas, and his success in breaking new cinematic ground. This portion of the book should appeal to most readers. The second segment, however, relating the corporate maneuvering that ousted Puttnam one year into a three-year contract will be of little interest to anyone not a film-biz insider.
