You'll Never Eat Lunch in this Town Again Summary


You'll Never Eat Lunch in this Town Again by Julia Phillips

Julia Phillips became a Hollywood player in the freewheeling 1970s, the first woman to win the Best Picture Oscar as co-producer of The Sting. She went on to work with two of the hottest young directorial talents of the era: Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver) and Steven Spielberg (Close Encounters of the Third Kind). Phillips blazed a trail as one of the very few females to break into the upper echelons of a notoriously chauvinistic industry. But for all her success, Phillips remained an outsider in the all-male Hollywood club. She had a talent for deal-making, hard-balling and wise-cracking, and a considerable appetite for drink, drugs and sex. But while these predilections were tolerated and even encouraged among 'the boys', Phillips found herself gradually ostracized. By the late 1980s she was ready to burn bridges and name names, and the result was this coruscating memoir of her career. Julia Phillips died on 1 January 2002 at the age of 57, but her book will stand as one of the classic exposes of La-La-Land in all its excesses and iniquities.
