Richard Fleischer has directed almost fifty films. Start by marking Just Tell Me When to Cry: A Memoir as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. I've read this book entirely aloud to someone with compromised eyesight and it was a wonderful experience for us both. Fleischer's ability to paint pictures with his anecdotes, his willingness to show himself as looking y/egotistical says a great deal about the man himself and how he managed to navigate murky Hollywood waters.

Produced by. Darryl F. Zanuck. The script was ostensibly written by producer Darryl F. Zanuck (under his frequent pseudonym "Mark Canfield"), but in his 1993 autobiography Just Tell Me When to Cry, Richard Fleischer revealed that it was in fact ghost-written by Jules Dassin, who was unable to work openly in the American film industry at the time, because he was on the Hollywood blacklist.

After 77 years in the movie business, Richard Fleischer probably has as many tales to tell as Scheherazade. In this long look at a lifelong, highstakes crapshoot, alternately funny and infuriating episodes surface about some of the more egomaniacal actors and production people Fleischer encountered along the way.

I was amazed at how many films Richard Fleischer directed. He was not pigeonholed to a specific genre. This memoir is full of fascinating anecdotes about temperamental stars, as well as the horrors of dealing with mercurial producers and the sundry impediments that plague movie makers the world over. A fun read.

Richard Fleischer was probably a director who rarely made a good film. Now I am not saying that he was a bad director but he either made a great film or a mediocre one, almost never anything in-between. However, in my opinion, one of his rare "good" films was the Robert Mitchum/Jane Russell vehicle His Kind of Woman. A middling fair overall but enjoyable but not nearly as enjoyable as reading the frustration Fleischer had to endure from Howard Hughes from this wonderful memoir "Just Tell Me When to Cry". What was simply suppose to be punching-up of the finale ended up being re-shoot of the film which took a year. These were just one of the many trials Fleischer had to go through during his long career and there are a long range of names here from the golden age of cinema; John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Eddie G. Robinson, Orson Welles, and even legendary director Akira Kurosawa. Fleischer retells his conflicts he had with the actors he worked with a great deal of respect, he simply tells it like it is but usually ended the recollections on a good note; I think the only one he had nothing good to say about was Charles Bronson. Not everything is dirt though, the most touching chapter by far was the recollection of directing a frail and dying Edward G. Robinson in his final film, Soylent Green. If you don't get a little choked up after reading that story, you must be a robot. Overall, this quite a read for anyone who either has seen Fleischer's films or a major film buffs.

Richard Fleischer directed Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, a true cinema masterpiece, which holds up today as few pre-CGI effects movies can. The amazing design of the Nautilus by Harper Goff still blows me away. Fleischer's memoir is a fun read, but also very moving in parts. This is on my bookshelf alongside good recent movie-maker memoirs like Lewis Gilbert's and Roy Ward Baker's. Recommended.

A bit disappointed Richard Fleischer sure was a great director and a favorite of mine as a child but this autobiography does not do him justice

Best in class for director autobiographies
very readable insightful stories, good writer, as one would hope
wish he had more to say about his father

This really isn't an autobiography, but tales from Fleischer's life told in the order they happened. He covers most of his most interesting life, and leaves out a good portion of the 1960s and most of the 1970s. Still, for those interested in fascinating Hollywood history, this is one you'll read over and over and over. (I've read it at least four times, and I know I will again.) I wish he'd written more, and because of this book, if I see he's done the commentary on a DVD, then I know it's worth listening to.

The Life and Times of Richard Fleischer Movie Career in this book is true life of the Hollywood scene. The way he expresses his experiences of Movie production is true of its day. You will be surprised on many kind of Movies he did. Your childhood. A kind man with a sharp sense on handling Big actors and Big moguls is a credit to his intelligence and judgements. Living in Hollywood for 20 years I can see how Hollywood used to be in the 50's 60's and so on. If I only had a time machine. This book will take you there. I couldn't put it down. It's why we dream the fantasies, to live those TMC Movie on how was back then. It was a magical time then. He takes you there on how a Movie was made. Sometimes Serious, Sometimes Funny. I was lucky to experience the tail end or a brush with fame of those great stars of its time. And......, I can relate to every story in this book, the truth on the way it was. Only if today Hollywood executives would take note to self today and read it. The way this book presents itself was the way Mr Fleischer lived. I had the experience of knowing Mr Fleischer and his wife Mickey in the 90's. And his views and personality is dead on, as he was in person, and Movie Making. Never getting his due or Life Time Achievement Award at the Oscar is a disappointment. But once you read this book you will agree he was a cool dude. A good writer, director, and producer. He cared about the product, the art, and all who were involved. He cared about life, family, work, no matter what curve ball was thrown at him.. This book should be required reading for film school. He made my life growing up plausible, and entertaining, Richard Fleischer, one of the Greats and one of the Best! Bruce of Ho-Ho-Kus N.J.
This is an entertaining and interesting book for anyone interested in the older hollywood. Great stories about working with stars such as Kirk Douglas are quite funny and working for Howard Hughes is also riveting with the crazy excess. Interesting too is that Fleischer is the son of Max Fleischer who created Popeye and Betty Boop.

Similar to this, I would also highly recommend another "B" director's memoir, Vincent Sherman's Studio Affairs: My Life as a Film Director - another excellent memoir from that era.

And of course the "A" directors Willy Wyler A Talent for Trouble: The Life of Hollywood's Most Acclaimed Director, William Wyler, Billy Wilder On Sunset Boulevard: The Life and Times of Billy Wilder, Howard Hawks Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood and John Ford Print the Legend: Photography and the American West (The Lamar Series in Western History) are all really good biographies. Frank Capra wrote a very interesting autobiography The Name above the Title: An Autobiography - which is fascinating, he does a nice job describing how success can be as paralyzing as failure.

Although the A listers have more prestige, the B listers are just as interesting and this book is great.
