It's a great insight into many of the crew-members responsibilities. He's also very honest as he describes interactions with some of the many recognizable people he's worked with over the years.

Craig Relyea was one of my closest friends while going through middle and high school in the late 60s in Los Angeles. This autobiography reads like a novel and gives great insight into the film-making business as well as telling great stories about each of these brilliant films.

JAILHOUSE ROCK, THE ALAMO, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, WEST SIDE STORY, THE GREAT ESCAPE for starters. To be associated with such iconic and classic movies -well thats what Robert E. Relyea's career in HOLLYWOOD is all about. Rising from the lowly ranks of 2nd assistant directors, Relyea became the most sought out "can-do" guy for the greatest films of the 1960's and beyond.

ROBERT WISE, JOHN STURGES, WILLIAM WYLER these are some of the iconic directors Relyea has assisted in his some fifty year career. And in his book NOT SO QUIET ON THE SET, he reveals just what it was like working with them or for them in some cases. Assisted by his son Craig, he presents a side of cinematic history that is all too rare. In candid and entertaining style, we get to see the naked reality of day to day film making from the winding down of the HOLLYWOOD studio system to the revving up of the independent producers.

ELVIS, JOHN WAYNE, YUL BRYNNER and STEVE McQUEEN, Relyea has known them all. But none more than McQueen, who's SOLAR production company he ran from the mega-hit BULLITT to the total crash of LE MANS. You'll discover what riding along with the "King Of Cool" was really like. Again, Relyea pulls no punches and gives us facts that you'll not find anywhere else. For THE GREAT ESCAPE, they really wanted to shoot it over by Palm Springs. On WEST SIDE STORY it was not as easy as dancing in the streets, they had to get gang protection to prevent them from being hounded out of the neighborhood. On JAILHOUSE ROCK, recording all twelve songs from the soundtrack in a single four hour session. Let's just say, you'll be able to amaze your friends at the great movie trivia this fascinating book has to offer. My only complaint is, I wanted MORE, much MORE! And thats how Relyea has quietly chosen to leave the set...

This is a tremendous book that flows like a classic novel. Robert Relyea gives you a front row seat into the making of some of the greatest films made during an era before digital editing and effects were available. Where the media seems to use the phrase "Hollywood Elite" with wild abandon and some bizarre air of negativity, Robert reveals the incredibly demanding and arduous roles that create the final product. These artists put their lives on the line to get the right shot. They work countless hours in very dangerous working conditions in order to tell a story in the best way possible. Robert takes you all over the world to describe these efforts in very entertaining detail. He's a wonderful narrator.

Craig embellishes this fine work by describing the impact a life in film had on the family. His is the voice of a son who is very proud of his dad. It's a marvelous collaboration.

This book is intense, very funny, and humanizes so many of the cast and crew who jointly created so many renowned films during 4 decades of filmmaking. It's a great insight into many of the crew-members responsibilities. He's also very honest as he describes interactions with some of the many recognizable people he's worked with over the years. The book takes you through the full gamut of emotions associated with balancing a very difficult job with family, friends, business associates. He relays some great and eye-opening moments with some of the most brilliant and popular actors of that era as well.

Outstanding book about the motion picture business from post war to today. Anecdotes from a true Veteran of the Wars. Bob Relyea was
the fly on the wall in his early careers to the onset feuds and love stories on the set of movies from the great directors and actresses.
Bob was the First AD on "Westside Story". He was a partner in a production company with Steve McQueen. Together they produced the classic
"Bullit". H worked with John Wayne on "The Alamo". An insider's look at the glory days of Hollywood. And then we get a look at the corporate Hollywood. And somehow we miss the Zanuck's and the studio system when compared to the analytics of corporate Hollywood. Zanuck would
greenlight a movie if he liked it without anyone else involved in the decision. Now all we have are committees and meetings that go nowhere.
Bob and his son Craig paint a nostalgic, but realistic view of the business with a lot of humor and laughs. Highly recommend.

Robert Relyea has shared in this book wonderful and candid stories of a Hollywood and its actors and directors which has now largely disappeared in this current era of computerized and over-the-top cinematic side effects.
Producers (or even assistant producers) no longer pilot WWII vintage planes into hillsides for "the perfect take."
The vignettes are priceless, especially that of John Wayne, who comes across as rude and somewhat mean-spirited, but inadvertently very very funny.
This is a great book for those who love Hollywood and the movies and culture it created.
The book is somewhat less candid on the ways in which a Hollywood career can affect the sustainment of a family life.

This is an extraordinary book from Robert Relyea. What an wonderful talent and incredible man. He was so smart and the stories are meaningful, poignant, and memorable. For anyone who loves the history of Hollywood, this is an absolute must-read.

the book was very interesting regarding the inside of how movies are made. it starts back in the days when movie studios owned the stars and extends to present day. im also a steve mcqueen fan so the story surrounding the author and mcqueen with their business and personal relationship was a bonus. the author had an amazing life for sure!
Fun, gossipy memoir by an insider
