Description: Meet the REAL Rocky, the REAL Psycho, and the REAL English Patient...

Read the real-life stories that inspired Hollywood's biggest blockbusters.

Who can forget the bone-crushing terror of Jaws, the mother-loving horrors of Pscyho, the dardevil exploits of Indiana Jones, or the romance of The English Patient? For a century, the movies have dazzled, frightened, thrilled, and touched us. But did you know that some of the silver screen's most imaginitive flights of fancy are firmly rooted in realty? If you've been amazed by Hollywood's greatest hits, wait until you discover...
-- The purportedly possessed teen who inspired The Exorcist
-- The vaudeville comics fictionalized in The Sunshine Boys
-- The 1927 DumbBell Murders that inspired Double Indemnity
-- The Hungarian spy in Africa who became The English Patient
-- The real-life boxer who was the model for Rocky
-- The con artist brothers depicted in The Sting
-- Plus the true stories behind Rope, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Great Escape, Indiana Jones, Jaws, and many other films

Full of surprising revelations and fascinating anecdotes, Real to Reel is compulsory reading for every movie fan.
