Bash fetes comeback tale

McNall's 'Fun' celebrated at Spago

Though a rapper would say Bruce McNall suffered “a catastrophic loss of flava” during his time behind bars for bank fraud, the former film financier, L.A. Kings owner and chairman of the NHL’s board of governors was back in the spotlight Wednesday at a book party hosted by attorney Bert Fields and his wife Barbara Guggenheim.

The author of “Fun While It Lasted,” now co-chairman of a production at Seven Arts Pictures, said writing the book was a form of “catharsis.”

Seven Arts CEO Peter Hoffman called McNall a “creative partner” — “We’re going to keep him out of the financial side” — and praised his new employee for having been “straight with the people that mattered. With the banks, the book speaks for itself.”

Among those at Spago were Frank Gehry, Berry Gordy, Richard Zanuck, Gary Winnick, Bernie Brillstein and Ken Ziffren.
