I LOVED HER IN THE MOVIES

ROBERT J. WAGNER & S. EYMAN    Book Number: 87809    Product format: Paperback

In a career that has spanned more than 60 years, actor Robert Wagner has witnessed the twilight of the Golden Age of Hollywood and the rise of television, becoming a beloved star in both media. During that time he became acquainted, both professionally and socially, with the remarkable women who were the greatest screen personalities of their day. His book is an intimate and revealing account of the charisma of these women on film, why they became stars, and how their specific emotional and dramatic chemistries affected the choices they made as actresses as well as women. Among his subjects are Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Gloria Swanson, Norma Shearer, Loretta Young, Joan Blondell, Irene Dunne, Rosalind Russell, Dorothy Lamour, Debra Paget, Jean Peters, Linda Darnell, Betty Hutton, Raquel Welch, Glenn Close, and the two actresses whom he ultimately married, Natalie Wood and Jill St John. In addition to perceptive commentary, he studies the strange alchemy of the camera and how it can transform the attractive into the stunning, and vice versa, and how the introduction of colour brought a new erotic charge to movies, enabling these actresses to become aggressively sexual beings. With great affection and a twinkle in his eye, here are the glory days of the 1940s and early 50s, when class, manners, friendship and a code of values ruled the city of stars. 244pp in very well illustrated softback.
