The veteran producer and author of the bestseller Hello, He Lied takes a witty and critical look at the new Hollywood. Over the past decade, producer Lynda Obst gradually realized she was working in a Hollywood that was undergoing a drastic transformation. The industry where everything had once been familiar to her was suddenly disturbingly strange. Combining her own industry experience and interviews with the brightest minds in the business, Obst explains what has stalled the vast moviemaking machine. The calamitous DVD collapse helped usher in what she calls the New Abnormal (because Hollywood was never normal to begin with), where studios are now heavily dependent on foreign markets for profit, a situation which directly impacts the kind of entertainment we get to see. Can comedy survive if they don’t get our jokes in Seoul or allow them in China? Why are studios making fewer movies than ever—and why are they bigger, more expensive and nearly always sequels or recycled ideas? Obst writes with affection, regret, humor and hope, and her behind-the-scenes vantage point allows her to explore what has changed in Hollywood like no one else has. This candid, insightful account explains what has happened to the movie business and explores whether it’ll ever return to making the movies we love—the classics that make us laugh or cry, or that we just can’t stop talking about.

"Whether it be My Lai, Watergate, The Pentagon Papers, or any of the other tumultuous events of that era, Obst seems to be in the middle of it. To understand this period, Too Good To Be Forgotten is a must read." —Seymour M. Hersh "Hooray and Hallelujah! David Obst is finally telling all of his secrets about publishing, politics, and the kind of journalism spawned by Watergate. Read this book and head for the bunker." —Kitty Kelley "David Obst is as crazy as the period he writes about. His stories make me both proud and ashamed to be part of his generation." —P. J. O'Rourke "Occasionally lucid. Doubtless the most compelling book about David Obst yet written in this century." —Taylor Branch "God knows many of them are fools, and most of them will be sellouts, but they're a better generation than we were. Since when are youths not allowed to be asses?" —Lillian Hellman on the '60s Generation Few people saw as much or knew as many of the primary figures of the '60s and '70s as David Obst. A journalist in the maelstrom of the anti-war movement, he helped break Seymour Hersh's Pulitzer Prize-winning My Lai Massacre story. A behind-the-scenes operator, he baby-sat the Pentagon Papers for Daniel Ellsberg. And as the hottest literary agent of the period, Obst quickly sewed up deals with the Watergate intelligentsia, including Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein and John Dean. Given his insider status, Obst offers some intriguing speculation on the identity of Deep Throat. Obst's knack for being at the center of every interesting story makes Too Good To be Forgotten a rare, you-are-there joy ride across the political and cultural frontier of that era. Surviving a youth of nuclear drop drills, Sputnik, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, Obst went on to study Chinese in Taipei. There, while working as an impromptu translator for GIs trying to pick up women in a local bar, he heard the truth about what was happening in the Vietnam War. Returning to America, he immersed himself in the anti-war movement and the countercultural zeitgeist of the '60s. Through Obst's eyes, we see the casual mix of idealism and excitement of the times: the 1968 Democratic Convention, where he barely escapes the beatings of Chicago police in Lincoln Park; the People's Park protests in Berkeley where he gets a face full of tear gas while trying to impress a comely woman; the Black Panther rally, where he receives a "Honkies for Huey" button; and the 1972 Republican Convention where Abbie Hoffman slips him an illegal substance that hits at the very moment Richard Nixon steps to the podium to accept the nomination. A definitive look at the baby boomers' coming of age, Too Good To be Forgotten puts you right in the thick of some of the defining moments of the time the kids tried to take the country away from the grown-ups. David Obst provides us with the memoir of a generation.

Harry Obst interpreted for seven American presidents. This book takes a look at five of them from the interpreter's perspective inside and outside the Oval Office: Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan. Most Americans have very little familiarity with professional interpreting, a profession known fairly well in Europe and Canada. After finishing WHITE HOUSE INTERPRETER, the reader will understand what interpreting is all about and why this profession is of considerable importance to many segments of our society: from the White House to the courthouse, from the military battlefield to our hospitals. Many thousands of highly trained professional interpreters and translators help the European nations and other highly developed countries successfully export large amounts of goods and services and keep millions of jobs at home. Obst examines the dismal training picture in the United States and urges remedial action. The book is written for the general reader. The author avoids the linguistic jargon. He mixes the technical information with interesting anecdotes, many of them never published before.
