Al Clark, producer of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, describes in hilarious detail the follies of the movie business, how this outrageous and enduring film came to be made, how it could so easily have gone wrong, and how it became the international phenomenon it remains over two decades later.

One of the most successful Australian films of all time, it is now also a stage musical which has been performed in a dozen countries – and on one cruise ship.

"Humour and panache … the flavour of William Goldman's classic Adventures in the Screen Trade" – Australian Book Review

"Witty and absorbing" – Film Review

"Funny and revealing" – Time Out

"Deft and intelligent … riveting" – The Observer

"Clark is a natural writer who knows and loves movies and has helped make one of the finest Australian films of recent times. Stories like this need to be told, and Clark is savvy enough to make sure it is spiced" – Cinema Papers

"It's the way Clark lets his mind wander that gives the book an enthralling depth under the colourfully honest descriptions … a laugh a minute" – Encore

A witty memoir about the film industry for fans of Charles Strouse and Born Standing Up by Steve Martin.
