About this item

Phil Avalon is one of Australia’s most successful independent film producers. Now fans and film buffs alike can delve into the life of a legend, in his Autobiography ‘From Steel City to Hollywood’.

Phil tells his story of a kid growing up in ‘Steel City’ - Newcastle, NSW; his memories as a surfer in the early 1970s; living as a struggling actor and Cleo ****** and later a writer, director and producer.

In 1978, he wrote, produced and starred in arguably Australia’s most successful independent film, ‘Summer City’ which unearthed a young Mel Gibson, Steve Bisley and John Jarratt.

Since that time he has made more than a dozen films starring notable Hollywood stars and captured a Masters World Surfing Championship along the way.

Jam packed with charming anecdotes from his career, From Steel City to Hollywood gives the reader a rare insight into the plights and successes of a living legend in the entertainment culture.
