Personal Quote:

Screenwriters are regarded in the industry as chronic malcontents, overpaid and undertalented, the Hollywood version of Hessians - measuring their worth in dollars, since ownership of their words belongs to those who hire and fire them.

Trivia:

He was the best-selling author of "True Confessions", his breakout novel published in 1977. It is the story of a tough, bleak account of a woman's brutal murder and its connection to two brothers, a policeman and a priest. Dunne and his wife, writer Joan Didion, collaborated on the 1981 film adaptation. The novel sold over one million copies. See more »
