Overview

When film director Brian De Palma invited author Julie Salamon to follow him on the set of The Bonfire of the Vanities, he had no idea that the $50-million movie would become one of Hollywood's biggest flops.

The Devil's Candy is the juicy, best-selling expose that sent Hollywood honchos running for cover. Who was responsible for the last-minute casting change that cost $4 million? Who knew that Melanie Griffith would show up halfway through the filming with a new set of breasts? Settle down in your front-row seat for a story that has more drama, hilarity, greed, folly, and ego than the movie that eventually ended up on the screen. Expertly reported and elegantly written, The Devil's Candy is a classic insider's look at the movie business and irresistible fun.
