This is an auction for BLADE RUNNERS, DEER HUNTERS & BLOWING THE BLOODY DOORS OFF: MY LIFE IN CULT MOVIES by Michael Deeley.

Amazon.com reviews:

“One man links The Deer Hunter, Blade Runner, The Italian Job, Don’t Look Now, The Wicker Man and The Man Who Fell To Earth. Producer Michael Deeley, an urbane Englishman in Hollywood, had to fight wars to get these movies made, from defending the legendary sex scene of Don’t Look Now from a disapproving Warren Beatty to seizing control of Convoy from a cocaine-ridden Sam Peckinpah. This is a no-holds-barred look at the true stories behind some of the greatest cult movies ever made.”

“FIVE STARS!!! Michael Deeley, an English movie producer with an impeccable record in the movie industry, has written an overview of many of the movies he has being involved in. This is a fast moving and witty account of the movie industry - with Deeley (now retired) seeking revenge on those with incredibly large egos. Michael Cimino (Heaven's Gate, The Deer hunter) is a particular favourite, with his apparent compulsive lying; the recent re-release of The Deer Hunter seemingly having spurred Deeley into writing this book. Deeley spares his targets little: Steven Spielberg, Christopher Lee and other actors and directors with over inflated egos are given a good kicking. Deeley writes very wittily. If you like movies and movie history, you will enjoy this book. It is a very quick and well paced read.”
