A Fine Story of How Hollywood Works
on 28 January 2014
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.
