    1 thought on “Hollywood”

    1. This is somewhat of a palette cleanser after reading about Nixon, Cambodia and Watergate. This is definitely a must read for anyone who loves Hollywood when it was largely run by autocratic, self-made men who spoke heavily accented English. Kanin, who got his start in the industry as an assistant to Samuel Goldwyn, captures his malapropisms perfectly. Men like Goldwyn and Harry Cohn were well-known for yelling and haranguing their staff, yet it seems like nobody would have considered it a hostil [...]

    2. Absolutely delightfulI have enjoyed this book immensely. The portraits of each Hollywood icon are drawn with detail and warmth that brings them to life. I was sad when I finished and knew it was over. Highly recommended!

    3. I ordered the sample on Kindle first and was so impressed with his comma usage that I bought the book. Then, the stories, deftly told, captivated me. I enjoyed it.

    4. Look, even if you're only mildly interested in old Hollywood, or even if you're not interested in it at all, Garson Kanin's writing style makes this a worthwhile read. Now, if you're really interested in old Hollywood as I am, then this is a rare book. Read it. the only annoying thing is that it's one of those stuffy old hardcovers that is REALLY hard to find. I only happened upon it by chance, buried in a shelf at my local library. Wish there was a kindle edition.

    5. So far so goodIt's been a great read till about 12% and I would read 2 pages and 1 would be blank. Read a couple more, blank page

    6. If you love old-time Hollywood this is a very fun read. Garson Kanin talks about moving out to LA in the '30s to become a screenwriter. He met many famous people including Charlie Chaplin who was not making movies at that point and had time to hang out with Kanin. He also talks about a brothel in LA where the ladies of the night looked like the actresses of the day and a person could ask for his favorite starlet. This same thing was in a scene of the 1997 movie L.A. Confidential.

    7. Hollywood discovering itselfA wonderfully written fast moving description of the early days of Hollywood introducing us to the writers, the directors, the stars the producers and the people and politics behind the scenes that kept everything spinning Kanin in is aptly able to depict all of this because he was often in the center of it

    8. Brilliant account of golden age of Hollywood!I loved Garson's memoir of old Hollywood, the stars, movie moguls, the famous writers and legendary producers. His story doesn't include scandals but there is gossip. And, Garson was a talented writer-director himself of some classic film.

    9. Enjoying this book immensely, the chapter on Garbo illuminates her engaging sense of humor, a quality that the public had a hard time seeing.Also loved anecdotes regarding screenwriting team of Wilder and Brackett. Highly recommended for fans of classic films. Kanin's writing stye is breezy and entertaining.

    10. A must read for lovers of old Hollywood. Great bits of the studio heads and the story tellers. A completely different way of making movies! I for one truly admire the old low tech way!!

    11. A rambling but charming reminiscence of Hollywood's golden age. The passages on John Barrymore and Carole Lombard alone are worth the read.

    12. I think I remember this book from when I was 12. If it's what I think it is, it's so good, but then, it's Garson Kanin.

    13. A book filled with fascinating nuggets of info about old Hollywood. The chapter of Goldwynisms was very funny.

    14. I think maybe originally meant to be a book about Sam Goldwyn fleshed out with other bits and bobs when it turned out to be a little thin. A little disjointed, but fun and interesting.

    15. Autobiographical account of Kanin years in Hollywood along with some accounts of Hollywood personalities. Most prominent figure in this is Samuel Goldwyn.

    16. His books on Hollywood are always enjoyable. This one was exactly as the title states…and just enough story on each topic!
