Hardboiled Hollywood by Max Decharne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Kiss Me Deadly, Bonnie & Clyde, Get Carter, Little Caesar, Goodfellas - these films may be classics, but their origins are often far less familiar. This book provides a chance to compare the sources with the original films, looking at everything from pulp novels to real-life criminals, and placing the films in the context of the times in which they were made. From The Big Sleep to Point Blank, The Godfather to LA Confidential, HARDBOILED HOLLYWOOD takes you behind the scenes at the scene of the crime. Includes 8 pages of illustrations.
