Product Description

Review

Praise for The Kid Stays in the Picture:“The best Hollywood memoir I’ve ever read!” (Michael Fleming, Variety)

“Don’t even try to put it down.” (Janet Maslin, New York Times)

“A naughty, outrageous, and wild ride--and perhaps the best Hollywood memoir ever written.” (Publishers Weekly)

Top Three Greatest Hollywood Tell-Alls (Entertainment Weekly)

“A sequel better than any [readers] could have anticipated. . . It’s a remarkable story of endurance, faith and determination, even readers who’ve never heard of Evans will find this to be both entertaining and inspiring. A harrowing but lively supplement to The Kid Stays in the Picture.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“The notorious kid is still in the picture. . . Evans has produced a quintessential Hollywood memoir.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A compelling and, at times, deeply emotional memoir.” (Booklist)

About the Author

A number of years ago I read “The Kid Stays in the Picture” and thought it was a brilliant read. There were many, many stories about the movie stars with whom Robert Evans worked both as an actor and later as a producer. As well as his life story which really does read like a fairy tale. It reminded me of David Niven’s autobiographies. I loved Evans wit, self deprecation and sheer enjoyment for his life and chosen career. “The Fat Lady Sang” begins with his illness - he had three strokes and his battle to regain his health. It is a story of hope and the meaning of friendship. There are not as many tales of movie stars but the ones he has included are very interesting. It again details how Hollywood works.

Fascinating life of shallowness, glamour, tough deals, public humiliation, yet amazingly good reliable friends where you would think there would only be dross, a love of family, a strong lengthy bond with those who serve him, and enchanted descriptions of an exquisite house and spiritual garden, I am sure would be hard to find in the "bling" and" bring on the new fad" attitude of "new money" . Should be compulsory reading for anyone who has suffered a stroke. Growing up I had contempt for this man's personal life gleaned from newspaper reports of cocaine use and the split with Ali ,but I understand all after reading this memoir and what a raconteur he would be at your dinner table.

this is a very fast light read. he seems likeable, honest (sort of)
and humbled by age - however don't know if i'd recommend - too lightweight
considering what he's done in his life. The kid stays in the picture was better.
