ABOUT THE BOOK Jul 25, 2006
`Secrets of the Screen Trade' is Alan Wardrope's reflection on his thirty-five year career in the movie business. He is a member of the Australian Cinema Pioneers' Society and played a crucial role in pushing local industry on the international market.
His memoir strips the industry of its illusory lights and make up, and presents it for what it is: political, manipulative and cutthroat. Wardrope weaves detailed information on the workings of the screen biz with amusing anecdotes involving classic and contemporary stars. An irate Roman Polanski pursued him around an historic London mansion, and he was almost sued for putting Elvis on the television.
Wardrope puts the industry on the table to study. A familiar cast including greats such as Cecil B. DeMille, Steve McQueen, Clarke Gable and Steven Spielberg walk through the pages giving the study lively, humorous examples.
A compelling story of one man's journey down Hollywood's Walk of Fame. .....Zeus Publications
