9780060096601: The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Industry

This book appeals to buyers of Jenna Jameson's bestselling "How to make Love like a Porn Star". It includes hundreds of amazing celebrity stories featuring both porn stars and mainstream. It features: reviews in film magazines eg "The Word", "Empire"; reviews in men's magazines eg "GQ", "Esquire". Everyone knows the adult film industry is a multimillion pound business. What most people don't know is how the porn industry got started with a $22,000 Mafia investment in a film called "Deep Throat" or how it mushroomed over the next quarter-century despite efforts by politicians, the FBI, and others to bring it down. "The Other Hollywood" tells that story, through hundreds of interviews by the people who lived through it. In the riveting oral-history format that made his first book, "Please Kill Me", one of the most memorable accounts of 1970s underground culture, Legs McNeil now pulls back the grimy satin sheets on one of the most astounding success stories in the history of business.

Careening back and forth between two groups, the actresses, directors, and others who made the films and the shady underworld figures who financed them, "The Other Hollywood" offers scores of never-before-told stories.
