Visit Robert and Craig Relyea's Take on Hollywood

NOT So Quiet On The Set
By Robert and Craig Relyea
Publisher: www.iuniverse.com
Nonfiction
ISBN 978-0-595-71332-5

Reviewed by Gordon Durich

Not So Quiet On The Set book is a testiment to Tinsel Town, the ups and downs, good and bad. It is a masterful insight into the workings of Hollywood, behind the scenes.

The father and son writing team have constructed a provocative look at the Industry, from different points of view.

Experiences the senior Relyea had working with the likes of Steve McQueen, Elvis, "The Duke" and many others, on flicks including "Bullitt" and "West Side Story."

The fresher side of the business from Craig Relyea adds to the interesting mix of information and entertaining reading.

This book has been lauded by Sid Ganis, President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; Pierce Brosnan; Michael Apted, director/President of Directors Guild of America and is an engaging, can't-put-down read.

Enjoy this great escape into life in movies during the macho era of yesteryear Hollywood. I did!
