OK, so I’m only a few pages into the book, and I don’t know if any of the people from this thread:

…who were interested in the book are reading, but OK:
Like I said I haven’t read much but already I can say some things: It’s unpretentious, it’s personal, and it’s also a funny read so far.
You’ll get to know some interesting facts you won’t get anywhere else (the whole Warren Beatty thing, the Vivica Fox mutiny, who was originally going to play Esteban, etc.) And it’s just awesome hearing Carradine talk about QT.
There is so much stuff that deserves a direct quote on the first few pages alone.
Already I can say that this is a must get for the KB fans.
One passage that particularily stunned and surprised me:
[quote]Lawrence Beder tells Gayle [David’s Manager] no one is taking any money for the film. They’re all working for scale or double-scale. Warren was. Daryl Hannah, Lucy Liu, Vivica Fox - they’re all willing to work for nothing, just for the chanche to be in a Tarantino film. He reminds us what a great opportunity this is, how much Pulp Fiction did for Travolta, all that."[/quote]
Wow. From what I understood only Uma got paid?? What does scale, double-scale mean anyway? Is that minimum salary or something?
Anyway, loving it.
