Description

A darkly hilarious, wildly erotic satire of Hollywood

King B., the world’s most admired filmmaker—winner of a string of Oscars and awards from Cannes to Venice—takes on a new project: the most expensive, star-studded, high-quality, X-rated film ever made. He joins forces with producer Sid Krassman, who’s made a fortune with B movies, and Angela Sterling, a misunderstood sex symbol who longs to do “serious” work. After convincing the principality of Liechtenstein to host the production in exchange for a distribution exclusive to boost tourism, King B. and Krassman arrive with cast and crew to make The Faces of Love. While keeping the nature of the film secret from American bankers, King B. lines up a host of European and American big-name stars. But word leaks out to the local religious groups and possibly even the Vatican. Between the Cardinal’s attempts to sabotage production and the big egos and even bigger libidos behind the scenes, the enterprise plummets into hilarious anarchy. Blue Movie is comic eroticism at its best—populated by over-the-top characters, memorable dialogue, and perverse vignettes, and colored by razor-sharp insights into the film industry. 

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate. 

“Southern has managed to lay a kind of prose on us that can perpetrate a complete hoax while telling a mother’s own truth.” —Chicago Tribune 

“If there were a Mount Rushmore of American humor, Terry Southern would be the mountain they’d carve it from.” —Michael O’Donoghue, SNL 

 “Terry Southern is the illegitimate son of Mack Sennet and Edna Saint Vincent Millay.” —Kurt Vonnegut 

“Terry Southern is the only author capable of handling mayhem on a gigantic scale.” —Esquire 

“Terry Southern writes a mean coolly deliberate, and murderous prose—and in it we may have at last found the rightful heir (saints protect me from sacrilege) of Nathaniel West.” —Norman Mailer

Terry Southern (1924–1995) was an American author and screenwriter. His satirical novels—including the bestselling cult classics Candy (1958) and The Magic Christian (1959)—established Southern as one of the leading literary voices of the sixties. He was also nominated for Academy Awards for his screenplays of Dr. Strangelove (written with Stanley Kubrick and Peter George) and Easy Rider (written with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper). His other books include Flash and Filigree (1958), Red-Dirt Marijuana and Other Tastes (1967), Blue Movie (1970), and Texas Summer (1991). In later years, he wrote for Saturday Night Live and lectured on screenwriting at New York University and Columbia University.
