The movie industry has always had the wherewithal to hire fancy writers and outrageous talkers and put them to work in a system that often turns them sardonic, if not bitter. So this latest quote book, subtitled "The Wit and Wisdom of Hollywood," isn't the worst of the genre. Samples: "If I had to live my life again I'd make all the same mistakes—only sooner"—Tallulah Bank-head. "If you play a pig, they think you're a pig"—Marlon Brando. "The best movie actors are children and animals"—Douglas Fairbanks. "It would be proper to put the name of my analyst in the credits of my films"—Bernardo Bertolucci. "Bad taste is simply saying the truth before it should be said"—Mel Brooks. (Holt Rinehart Winston, $9.95)
