Hollywood Anecdotes

An older audiobook, back from the cassette days and when several of the subjects of the stories were still alive. The story tries to cram in a bit too much information in the relatively short time. Some 'anecdotes' were interesting though and Debbie Reynolds did seem to try hard and does a decent job as the narrator.
I'd recommend if on sale or for a somewhat short listen of 'old' Hollywood, its legends and folklore.
