Mr. Wagner has written a thoughtful, compelling memoir of the great actresses he has known and worked with throughout his career. He began as a young man at the end of Hollywood's golden age and his reflections on the greats from Stanwyk, Dunne, Davis, both Hepburns, Ball and on and on and on to the present day. It's short of a love letter without getting overly sentimental. His insights and observations are honest, intelligent, delightful and quite remarkable... great book for film buffs, or any woman considering a career in acting. This, along with Wagner's other two books are some of the best written on his life and Hollywood. I have come to have a renewed respect for the actor....and the person!!! Thumbs up & bravo, Mr. W.! I hope there are more to come. I devour bios, and have for most of my 62 years... I've read them all, and Wagner's are among the very best.

I use audiobooks as background for my workouts, so I love this type of book, which is made up of short, entertaining stories. I don't have any personal feelings about Mr. Wagner himself, having never seen any of his movies or TV shows (except for a recent appearance on TV Land), but the women he writes about are known to all, and he has some entertaining stories and insights about them. Recommended.

I loved it. If you have any interest in the old movies then you must listen to this book. Robert is an enjoyable narrator and highlights the skills and fine qualities of each asctress, that you can't wait to rewatch their movies again. I can't wait to listen to other Robert Wagner books.
i loved hearing about the movie stars....especially from a first hand author...loved the inside scoops
