Summary
A rollicking autobiography from the legendary producer ofGoodfellas,Rocky, andRaging Bull,and an insider's account of making movies in Hollywood over half a century The list of films Irwin Winkler has produced in his more-than-fifty-year career is extraordinary:Rocky,Goodfellas,Raging Bull,De-Lovely,The Right Stuff, andCreed. His films have been nominated for fifty-two Academy Awards, including five movies for Best Picture, and have won twelve. Winkler's new filmCreed II,starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, opening fall 2018, will be followed by Martin Scorsese'sThe Irishman, a major mafia saga for Netflix starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. InA Life in Movies, his charming and insightful memoir, Winkler tells the stories of his career through his many films as a producer and then as a writer and director, charting the changes in Hollywood over the past decades. Winkler started in the famous William Morris mailroom and made his first film-starring Elvis-in the last days of the old studio system. Beginning in the late 1960s, and then for decades to come, he produced a string of provocative and influential films, making him one of the most critically lauded, prolific, and commercially successful producers of his era. This is an engrossing and candid book, a beguiling exploration ofwhat it means to be a producer, including purchasing rights, developing scripts, casting actors, managing directors, editing film, and winning awards.Filled with tales of legendary and beloved films, as well as some not-so-legendary and forgotten ones,A Life in Moviestakes readers behind the scenes and into the history of Hollywood
