What People are Saying About This

Olympia Dukakis

Paris! The Sixties! The film world! 'Tis a consummation devoutly to be wish'd.' Every film student and movie lover should read this book.

Rex Reed

Of all the players on a movie set, the dialogue coach knows more than anyone and takes less credit that everyone. Frawley Becker is the one they should have wined, dined, and hugged the most. He's the one who wrote it all down…In whole sections, or in juicy tidbits, this book is a glorious read. Take it to bed and - this is a promise - you'll be up all night.

Carl Reiner

Oh, to be that rare fly on the wall like Frawley Becker was! Observing and remembering with sharp accuracy the great personalities of the Sixties! From his unusual vantage point, he brought me to people and places I was happy to visit. And all of this in a flowing style that makes for easy reading!
