I enjoyed this audiobook, but a twinge of sadness listening as Niven's Parkinson's disease was slowly muffling his distinct British accent. His other book is also recommended (The Moon is a Balloon).
Beautifully written, Niven in his element, sharing anecdotes and behind the scenes glimpses into Hollywood in the 30s and 40s. Photographs of some of the old supporting Actors would have been useful. I found myself googling images to prompt my memory at times. He manages to talk his way through some of the most glamorous periods in film history without ever being unkind or salacious. I loved this book and will now be ordering some of the films he beautifully brings to life.

Laugh out loud stuff and David Niven is a joy to listen to. Brilliant book
