The Dream Merchants
Return to a time when Hollywood was young and the movie industry was just starting out. In Harold Robbins' second novel, he captures a bygone era of entertainment pioneers turning cinematic dreams into reality. The Dream Merchants is a story of powerful men and passionate women, doing whatever they have to in order to succeed. Johnny Edge is a former carny hustler, filled with schemes and ambition. Peter Kessler trades in a life of being stuck in the hardware business for the fortunes of moviemaking. Actress Dulcie Warren isn't afraid to use her sexuality to fulfill her ambitions. And if she has to take someone down to get to the top? That's show business. Their worlds collide on the studio back lots at Magnum Pictures in moments of intrigue and entanglement. Robbins' own experiences at Universal Studios laid the foundation for The Dream Merchants, the novel that would later be made into an all-star miniseries featuring Mark Harmon, Morgan Fairchild, Eve Arden, Robert Culp, Jose Ferrer, Robert Goulet, and Fernando Lamas.
