"Everybody comes to Hollywood
A guy, who kind of looked like Dracula, except he had to remove his fangs to talk, asked: "All those horror stories about writers getting ripped off in Hollywood - are they true?"
"Eventually the Court agreed with Buchwald and gave him a piece of the profits. But, then Paramount said that although "Coming To America" grossed nearly $300 million, that it didn't break even. In fact, they suffered a big loss."
After the applause for Goldman's line died down, a guy in a Robocop outfit asked, "What about you guys? Have you been ripped off?"
It was also the last convention Chris and I attended together. And when we flew home, it wasn't to Hollywood, but to a little seaside dot on the map, called Ilwaco, Washington.
