qAn extraordinarily entertaining look inside the film industry q-Pierce Brosnan, award-winning actor and producer A veteran of over fifty years in the film industry, Robert E. Relyea gives a behind-the-scenes, first-person look into Hollywood's moviemaking landscape during the pre- and post-Kennedy years in America. Not So Quiet on the Set is Elvis Presley wishing for a normal life during a break in recording the soundtrack for Jailhouse Rock. It's dealing with street gangs and studio politics while making West Side Story. It's trying to stay alive while working side by side with John Wayne on The Alamo. It's crashing an authentic Nazi warplane against a hillside in Germany during The Great Escape. It's getting fired by the studio while filming Bullitt in San Francisco and it's battling runaway budgets and Steve McQueen's demons in France while making Le Mans. Not So Quiet on the Set presents rare insights into the mechanics and politics of filmmaking and helps define a dynamic period in Hollywood history. A unique collaboration between father and son, it is a real-life adventure that not only illustrates how the movie industry really works but provides a revealing portrait of Hollywood's loss of innocence.And because of an antique law that still exists prohibiting us from photographing real money, we had to create imitation dollar ... ment of a hundred aMGM dollars, a used them during the daya#39;s shoot then turned them in at night to have their pay stubs signed. That, of course, was how it was supposed to work. I had the feeling some of the fake coins were leaving the studio lotaI just didna#39;t know how many.
