2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark West on 22 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a sweeping overview/memoir of Palace Pictures, the upstart English production house that shook things up in the 80s and early 90s, taking in the story of its co-chairmen Nik Powell and Stephen Woolley at the same time. Well written, with interviews from just about everyone involved in the Palace story, this runs at a good pace and has a nice mixture of showbusiness nitty gritty (Powell seems to have spent all his time chasing money) and gossip, whilst also painting a vivid picture of a changing film industry. Although it's nicely detailed, it does appear to completely ignore some Palace films (some get a name-check but that's all) but that aside, this is a good read and makes you wish that Palace had stayed around for a while longer (especially when you look at the list of their film credits). Highly recommended.

Interesting history 24 Aug. 2012

I read this book because I am interested in film business. Although this book was an interesting look at how the decline of Palace pictures looked from within, I didn't find it as useful or educational as "My Indecision is Final" or even "Down and Dirty Pictures". It was an interesting look at the British film industry during a very turbulent time, and it isn't a bad read for anyone looking to see what a bunch of brash overachievers can or cannot accomplish without getting down into the nitty gritty of the numbers or specific business practices.
