Celluloid Ham ? The Big Book of Little-Known Stories from the World of Cinema

We all love a good bit of movie-related trivia. In particular, we love movie-related trivia that we haven?t known before. And that?s the thing with so many stories you find online nowadays, isn?t it? You?ve heard them all before, especially if you?re a true film buff.
Well, with the stories in this book, this is pretty unlikely. Here, you will find rare (and some previously unpublished) anecdotes from the past sixty years of world cinema, with a particular emphasis on Hollywood?s output in the eighties and nineties.
So, go ahead and click on that preview button ? free is free, right?

The Geek Who Came from the Cold: Surviving the Post-USSR Era on a Hollywood Diet

Based on a true story

When the first wave of pirated videotapes from the west reached the USSR in the second half of the 1980s, that stuff was naturally illegal. If you had money, you still watched it, of course, be it ?Commando?, or ?The Godfather?, or ?Emmanuelle?, or whatever you were lucky to get. Maybe you?d get arrested, maybe you wouldn?t. If you were found out, in most cases that meant prison. You would still go to your friends’ place and watch it though ? and you couldn?t get enough of it.

Being a timid Jewish boy in a repressed and conservative society dominated by very specific ideas of masculinity was difficult enough. But being one of the first film geeks in a country that never had a word like ?geek? in its vocabulary? well, that made life so much more complicated. Hollywood?s fairy tales may offer you shelter from reality, make you forget all the bullying at school, death in the family or the shaky financial situation in the country, but it?s only a question of time before you snap.

?The Geek Who Came from the Cold ? Surviving the Post-USSR Era on a Hollywood Diet? is Leon Kaminsky?s second novel ? tragicomic, wistful and passionate.
