about

In FORREST GUMP, Gump runs for 3 years and 2 months. In WITHNAIL AND I, Withnail drinks lighter fuel and survives apparently unharmed. In TWISTER, a tornado picks up a petrol tanker. In KEYSTONE HOTEL, a custard pie is teleported down a phone line. In DUMB AND DUMBER, a criminal is killed by a super-hot chilli. Hollywood is notorious for playing fast and loose with the laws of man and nature. But does it deserve its reputation for mangling reality? In DEATH BY CHILLI SAUCE, film fanatic and amateur sleuth extraordinaire Richard Germain asks the question 'Could that really happen?' of 101 well-known -- and apparently far-fetched -- cinematic events. The result is an epic voyage of discovery, where the truth is time and again shown to be just as weird and wonderful as the movies -- and much funnier. The ultimate blend of history, trivia and pop science, this is a book no lover of film should be without.
