Steve Monzelli came to age in the 1970's, an era now considered the Silver Age of Hollywood. Monzelli met and became friends with many of the cinema icons of the era, including Steve McQueen, Richard Burton, Sam Peckinpah, Bette Davis and many others. He also appeared as an extra in a handful of big budget Hollywood films, mostly by sneaking onto the sets. Besides his obsessive love of movies he also had a great love for good vodka and prostitutes. These tales offer many hilarious and a few sad stories of a life build around one fan's obsessive love of movies.
