William Maxwell Evarts "Max" Perkins (September 20, 1884 – June 17, 1947) was an American book editor, best remembered for discovering authors Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Thomas Wolfe.
Max Perkins at the movies:
Publisher Jeff Chandler mentions him to aspiring novelist Carol Lynley in Return To Peyton Place
Hurd Hatfield plays a character based on him in the 1979 TV version of You Can't Go Home Again.
Finally in Cross Creek Perkins himself, played by Malcolm McDowell, shows up at the backwoods home of Marjorie Rawlings to get her working on her book.
Life is never interesting enough, somehow... You people who come to the movies know that.

December 1897, Paris. Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty but already two children and a lot of anxieties. He has not written anything for two years. In desperation, he offers the great Constant Coquelin a new play, a heroic comedy, in verse, for the holidays. Only concern: it is not written yet. Ignoring the whims of actresses, the demands of his Corsican producers, the jealousy of his wife, the stories of his best friend's heart and the lack of enthusiasm of all those around him, Edmond starts writing this piece which nobody believes. For now, he has only the title: "Cyrano de Bergerac".
