Summary:

Hit and Run tells the improbable and often hilarious story of how two film
packagers well known for spending other people's money and ripping off credit for
other people's work went on a deliberate campaign to reinvent themselves as
studio executives. With the exception of Batman, Jon Peters and Peter
Guber were barely involved with the most successful films they "produced." Steven
Spielberg wouldn't allow them on the set of The Color Purple, and they
werre on the set of Rain Man only once, briefly. With the help of one of
Michael Milken's top lieutenants, they succeeded. It was the most audacious sales
job of their careers: This unlikely team got Sony to give them the richest deal
in Hollywood history.
