This book looks at David Puttnam's controversial reign as studio chief at Columbia Pictures. When the Oscar-winning producer of "Chariots of Fire" and "The Killing Fields" was named chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Pictures in 1986, he promised to break every rule the Hollywood establishment held dear. The book tries to show how Hollywood really works and asks whether Puttnam did resign or whether he was fired? Warren Beatty, producers Ray Stark and Don Simpson, the President of NBC entertainment, and many other Hollywood insiders offer their contributions to the story.
