BORING

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

no one


What was most disappointing about Stephen Galloway’s story?

it was so boring, I do not think insiders would even read it...nothing new here


Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?

NO No No this women cannot pronounce proper names let alone simple words.....her Mother was MARGO.....NOT MARGOAT......truly disappointing.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leading Lady?

the self serving ones, it was clear this was a rose colored look at her life, the texture was not there


Any additional comments?

I am pleading to producers of audio books to check the narration before releasing

LOVED IT!

What an inspiring and fascinating book. Sherry is an icon and this book did an incredible job of encapsulating her journey from actress to studio mogul to philanthropist. Can't recommend highly enough. Even for non-entertainment business listeners, the stories of how challenging it is to get any movie made will make you appreciate film even more.
