[nice clean copy, bottom corners lightly bumped; jacket shows faint handling wear, one teensy-weensy closed tear at top of rear panel]. (B&W photographs) The jacket blurb calls Gilliam's film THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN "the greatest financial disaster in movie history"; literally true or not, this is still a classic tale of modern Hollywood, with "deceit and scandal ... vendettas, political feuds and jealousy." And all this over a movie that cost *only* "an astronomical $46 million" (I think that was the catering budget on TITANIC...).
