    schema:reviewBody ""Michael Deeley is an Oscar-winning movie producer with a singular Midas touch - nearly all of his pictures have attracted avid cult followings. Deeley has worked with some of the world's toughest moviemakers and lived to tell the tale, in this memoir. Few would imagine that one man links Ridley Scott's visionary sci-fi classic Blade Runner; The Deer Hunter, that searing study of lives ruined by the Vietnam War; and The Italian Job, the much-loved British caper that made an icon of Michael Caine. But Deeley, an urbane Englishman who scaled the heights of Hollywood, had to fight wars to get those three movies on to screens. His other challenges have included: defending the legendary sex scene of Nic Roeg's Don't Look Now from a disapproving Warren Beatty; ordering the controversial cutting of the original Wicker Man; trekking up a New Mexico mountainside with David Bowie for The Man Who Fell to Earth; and seizing control of Convoy from a cocaine-ridden Sam Peckinpah. Deeley's adventures in motion pictures span the Swinging London of the 1960s, the New Hollywood of the 1970s, and the blockbusting Spielberg era of the 1980s. And Deeley makes a frank and humorous tour guide through the ways and wiles of getting great movies made."--BOOK JACKET." ;
