Publisher's Summary

With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940s and early 1950s than Robert Wagner. You Must Remember This is Wagner’s ode to a bygone age, to its incomparable style and how it was displayed, and to its legendary stars.
Wagner revisits the houses, restaurants, and other haunts of Hollywood’s elite, offering an intimate view of their lives on and off screen. He fondly recounts mythic figures simply entertaining at home among friends, away from the publicity machine and public eye that morphed into today’s paparazzi culture. Wagner also discusses the business of Hollywood and its evolution from an industry once dominated by moguls to one run by agents, and examines the career arcs of his peers, carefully considering why some survived and others faded.
Engaging and entertaining, You Must Remember This is a window into the splendors of an erstwhile era and an opportunity for listeners to live vicariously through one its most beloved leading men.

For the true LA/Hollywood affectionado!

This story was perfect for us. As former Hollywood and LA residents this filled in many historical gaps. It was not your typical Hollywood memoir, but instead an insightful look back to the golden ages. Highly recommended!

The way a story about Hollywood years past, should

Not what I expected. No it was much better. Robert Wagner makes you feel like you are there with him and his friends. I highly recommend this magnificent work for anyone who loves Hollywood and the movies.

Interesting But not what I thought

This is a book about the history of Hollywood buildings and people.
I thought it would be about Robert Wagner exclusively. But having said that it was all the more interesting. Well read and very entertaining I thought.

Incredible age of glamour

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A curates egg,good in parts

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hollywood itself was the star

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Going on a bit to far at the end

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You Must Remember This?

The second half

Any additional comments?

The stories of how Hollywood came to exist were fascinating but the latter part of the book was boring to say the least,all those restaurants most of which I'd never heard of.Wagner was never a major star & the constant name dropping didn't convince me that he had been.
