This chapter examines the problems associated with Hal Ashby's decision to do the film editing for the films Second Hand Hearts and Lookin' to Get Out. It discusses Lorimar's complaint about the cost of the films which went way over the budget and the producers' disappointment over the final product which they deemed unfit for release. It discusses Ashby's editing of Let's Spend the Night Together which did not impress the band members except for Mick Jagger.
