If I do say so myself, the book is very entertaining. The chapter that stands out for me is Gail’s remembrance of what went on behind-the-scenes in creating Easy Rider. For years and years, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper have given Terry Southern short shrift in regards to the film’s success and never shared any of the millions of dollars they earned with him. Today is even worse as “the Lads,” as Terry called them, now say he didn’t even write the screenplay but only gave them the title. Balderdash says Gail and she is backed up by Terry’s original script now housed at The New York Public Library.
