Bob Koster was born in Hollywood and worked for 35 years in the movie industry, spanning the time from the Studio System to the current spate of Independent filmmakers. He worked in various phases of production but mainly in the production department as an Assistant Director and a Unit Production Manager. He worked with some of the most famous directors and actors of their time. His insights and comments on these films and the characters involved are fascinating, and told as seen through the eyes of a child of the times. Bob's father was a famous film director so he was raised in an atmosphere of glamour and drama, but he was also distant enough from it to be able to keep an interesting perspective on the fascinating circus surrounding him. An absorbing read for anyone interested in cinema history and the backstage activities surrounding the great films.
