Book Description

A New York Times bestseller and a “charming tribute” (Kirkus) to Hollywood’s most beloved era
 
Film and television star Robert Wagner has been delighting audiences for more than sixty years, and his many fans flocked to bookstores when he began to record his memories on the page. In his second New York Times bestseller, Wagner shares stories of Hollywood life behind the scenes from the 1930s through the 1950s. As poignant as it is revealing—and filled with magical moments like Judy Garland singing Gershwin at a dinner party thrown by Clifton Webb and golf games with Fred Astaire—You Must Remember This is Wagner’s tender farewell to a legendary era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Read 6 Jun. 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the second book I have read of Robert Wagners. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It takes you back in time to what Hollywood was like a long time ago. I love reading about the stars of yesteryear, the places they went to,the naughty things they got up to, it wasnt in your face like they are today. Todays stars could learn a lot from the stars gone by. Thank you Robert for another good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES 30 Mar. 2014
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
If you're old enough to have read movie magazines - those glossies that purported to tell the "real truth" about Hollywood stars you'll relish this look at those stars from an insider. If you're not of that age you'll be fascinated by these stories of their lives and idiosyncracies as related by one of them. Robert Wagner is both candid and charming as he remembers the glory days of the silver screen with fondness and a smidgen of regret.

This was an exclusive group and they wanted it that way as is shown by their clubs, parties and homes. A great deal is learned about a person by his or her home. For instance, the most opulent house Wagner ever visited was Jack Warner's - "It was an immense neoclassical mansion, more than 13,000 square feet sitting on nine acres of property." In addition it boasted two guesthouses, terraces and gardens, three hothouses, a nursery, and a nine-hole golf course. For all his wealth and power it is said that Warner was "mortally afraid of his wife"

On the other hand James Cagney's home on Coldwater Canyon was unpretentious, resembling a Connecticut farmhouse. There was a dance studio inside where Cagney could practice, assuring himself that he could still do the steps he did as a New York chorus boy. Among the best party givers during those years were Bill and Edie Goetz. From the outside their home looked like many other Holmby Hills mansions but once inside you were awestruck by a magnificent display of Impressionistic art. In fact, they owned one of the finest private collections of art in America, and entertained often to share or show-off their paintings.

Found this book completelh boring. If Robert Wagner were a tour guide and showing you around the places mentioned it might be interesting
As for people mentioned there is nothing that hasn't been said before.
