This first chapter introduces many of the themes and theories that will be disseminated throughout the book and chronicles all the events that brought director William Friedkin to cross paths with Gerald Walker’s novel. Great attention is given to Friedkin’s role within the New Hollywood movement, from his rise to his downfall, and a short but life altering string of box-office failures.
