The former United Artists exec wrote what I consider to be the best books about the lunacy of the entertainment business — Final Cut, about how Michael Cimino’s disastrous 1980 Heaven’s Gate brought down the studio. Bach also wrote biographies of Marlene Dietrich, Moss Hart and Leni Riefenstahl. He died of cancer at his home in Vermont.
