At a book party hosted by Stacey Snider and Ron Meyer, the Italian film legend Dino De Laurentiis said he took a swim in the past for his bio after resisting such entreaties for years. "To try to remember from boyhood to now is not an easy operation," the film legend admitted. The company Miramax Books topper Harvey Weinstein said, "I'm in awe of him. From 'Bitter Rice' to 'Hannibal,' what he forgot, I won't know."
