As the producer of the classic films The Sting, Taxi Driver, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Julia Phillips quickly rose to the pinnacle of silver screen success, becoming the first woman ever to win an Academy Award for Best Picture; she was also battling the industry's blatant sexism and a personal passion for cocaine. Topping the bestseller list upon its 1991 publication, Phillips's hilarious and often scandalous memoir chronicles how she survived the Babylon of 1970s Hollywood. Looking back at people now considered legends, Phillips also offers candid portraits of Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Richard Dreyfuss, Goldie Hawn, and Francois Truffaut.
