5.0 su 5 stelle MisAdventures Rock! 7 novembre 2011
Di Elizabeth B. Walkowski - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
I've been reading Allan Cole's work for years and have wanted to know the stories behind the stories. Well, here it is, an account of twenty years of collaboration between Allan and his writing partner, Chris Bunch, with all the ups and downs of creating novels and television scripts, along with the inside scoop on what dedication, knowing the right people, and a dash of luck can bring. I've learned what inspired Magnum P.I.'s "The Ugliest Dog in Hawaii" episode, why the Incredible Hulk is green, why the number thirteen is a good number, and how to get rid of a pestiferous actor.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Real Deal 24 gennaio 2012
Di Tom Szollosi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Allan Cole knows whereof he writes. I was witness, some of the time, to his Hollywood Misadventures. He and his partner, the late Chris Bunch, were always a welcome highlight to my day when I was working for Stephen J. Cannell Productions. We knew we'd be getting quality scripts -- and we'd have a wonderful time in meetings. Allan's highly reliable memory for the guys' misadventures is a blast to read -- even if you weren't there. I knew many of the people he writes about, and his "reportage" is dead-on, not to mention very, very funny. For anybody who'd like a glimpse into the TV wars and much much more, "Misadventures" is the adventure not to be missed. It's authentic, it's entertaining, and written with the sure hand of a true pro -- in both the screen and book-writing businesses. Delightful fun all the way!

5.0 su 5 stelle Take a ride on the wild side 25 ottobre 2013
Di Pete Rogan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
My Hollywood MisAdventures is a total romp. Take two savvy would-be (well, hell, really honest-to-God working-in-journalism-and-motorcycle-mags) writers wanting to break into Hollywood, add chutzpah, lucky breaks, and an indefatigable sense of Mission, plop in a touch of irreverence, shake well and serve over the rocks -- whatever rocks you got, included rented ones. Didn't know you could rent rocks? Let Allan tell you how he and his late partner, Chris Bunch, encountered the man who cornered the market in rentable Hollywood rocks.

A lot of books out of Hollywood tell you about the awful back-office politics, the terrible back-stabbing, the awesomeness of this or that personality. Well, this isn't that book. Bunch and Cole didn't have illusions about the world they wanted to write for, took no crap, and dealt with the superficial personalities and overinflated egos like the fakes they were -- all the while garnering a reputation as the guys who could Fix Things, which is a nice reputation to have in a town where things don't just go wrong, they come completely off the tracks. Along the way they had a great deal of fun and actually met some genuine people. Like Jack Klugman and Lorne Greene. And some notable other types, but if you're a fan of Steven Seagall I probably shouldn't say any more.

This book will make you grin. It will make you laugh. It will also give you a very good idea of what it takes to survive in the land of snakepits that is Hollywood and come out the other side smelling like a rose. Not to be missed.

5.0 su 5 stelle THE REAL DEAL 23 gennaio 2012
Di RC MATHESON - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
My gifted pal from 80's Hollywood, the legendary Allan Cole, is a huge, often mystic talent who writes with wisdom and poisonously smart edge. His wit cuts to any chase you may have and his outlaw heart pounds to beats deep and addictive. Do yourself a favor: plunge in.
5.0 su 5 stelle A Must-Read For Fans Of '70s & '80s TV 24 dicembre 2013
Di D. Snauffer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
I love (auto)biographies of Hollywood writers, and I remember from childhood many of the programs which Allan Cole and Chris Bunch wrote for, particularly "The Incredible Hulk," "Buck Rogers," and "Werewolf." Cole's book "My Hollywood MisAdventures" is a fun, revealing, inspirational read. I say inspiring because Cole and Bunch were two best friends who may not have reached the pinacles of their profession, but they had the respect of their colleagues and never allowed their writing ambitions to become anything but a labor of love. Revealing because of the insiders-look we get at the TV industry (at least during the 1970s and '80s), and fun because that's clearly what Cole and Bunch made of their duties. A must-read!

A quick note to Allan Cole, if he should ever read this: Great book! But you really could have charged more for the Kindle Edition, I'd have paid it! At $2.50, it's a steal!
