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.Hide synopsis

This is pretty old now, published in 1991, but it could have been written yesterday. Often profane and very very opinionated, author Julia Phillips, who produced both THE STING and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, knew everyone who was anyone at the time and lived to tell about them (after a deep descent into drug addiction). The book is great fun and you will recognize the names of many people who no doubt did not ever invite the author to lunch again.
