Riassunto: "The book is a revelation...because I never knew all the details, all the people and the strategies that went into the making of the movie Saint Jack...I have discovered how this excellent movie was created. And what I had thought was a lost world is still accessible – I enjoyed revisiting it in this book (Kinda Hot: The Making of Saint Jack in Singapore).” - Paul Theroux, author of Saint Jack
Kinda Hot: The Making of Saint Jack in Singapore reveals, for the first time, the extraordinary story behind the making of Saint Jack (1979), the only American film to be entirely shot on location in Singapore. Filmed in secret, it was subsequently banned by the authorities.
Adapting Paul Theroux’s celebrated novel about pimps and prostitutes in the Lion City, a local, amateur cast and crew worked right alongside brilliant film-making talents gathered from all over the world.
The director was Peter Bogdanovich, one-time Hollywood golden-boy whose career was in decline. The star was Ben Gazzara, a charismatic method actor. They immersed themselves into the world of brothels in the name of ‘research’.
The film was made on the run, with the cast and crew improvising wildly, chaotically capturing the last vestiges of Singapore’s famous colonial and seedy past, all the time telling the authorities they were shooting a romance called Jack Of Hearts.
Author Ben Slater has tracked down everyone from chief crew members and lead actors to the humblest extras, in order to tell the gripping, funny and poignant tale of what happened when Saint Jack came to Singapore for six months in 1978.
About the Author: Hailing originally from England where he was born in 1974, Ben Slater is a writer, lecturer and curator who has been based in Singapore since 2002 where he lives in the east of the island. A former magazine editor and art-house cinema programmer in the UK, he has written about film for a number of publications in the UK, US and Asia. Kinda Hot is his first book.
