A Hollywood insider's story - told with all the charm, humour and spontaneity that have sustained Robert Wagner's career
Robert J. Wagner has been active in Hollywood for more than five decades and has starred in such films as A Kiss Before Dying, The Longest Day, The Pink Panther and, most recently, the Austin Powers movies. On television, Wagner also starred in three long-running series, It Takes a Thief (with Fred Astaire), Switch (with Eddie Albert and Sharon Gless) and Hart to Hart (with Stefanie Powers). He is currently featured on Two and a Half Men. Wagner is married to actress Jill St. John and lives in Los Angeles.
Wagner, who moved smoothly from films (A Kiss Before Dying; The Pink Panther) to TV (It Takes a Thief; Hart to Hart), discusses his life, career and four marriages in this dishy tell-all. His strong performance makes the audio a standout among Hollywood memoirs. His voice reveals a great emotional range: the anger he nursed for his remote and critical father; his joy at the births of his daughters; his frustration at some Hollywood insiders' pettiness. At times his voice dips into an intimate tone just above a whisper, such as when describing his first love tryst with Barbara Stanwyck in the early 1950s (he was 22, she was 46) or narrating his devastation after the accidental drowning of wife Natalie Wood in 1981. The final disc features 24 pages of personal photos, which add a good deal to the overall package and should be standard issue with all audio celebrity memoirs. A Harper Entertainment hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 11). (Oct.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
"Robert Wagner is outrageously indiscreet in his zinging account of Hollywood affairs ... His on-off-on-again life with Natalie Wood is one of Hollywood's greatest love stories ... His memoirs cannot help but be entertaining" * Sunday Times * "Reads like a Who's Who of Hollywood. It's fantastic to find out about that era and the stars he knew, being married to Natalie Wood and friends with Bette Davis. What a story he has to tell" * Mirror *
