I am an old movie buff so, I appreciated the stories of Hollywood and the old gossip about the stars of the day.
Some of the advice Hedda Hopper gave is as true today as it was in the 60's. A good read for me!!!
The reader was exelent and sounded like Hedda herself was reading.

THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT is THE book for classic movie fans. Gossipy anecdotes abound about the greatest stars of Hollywood's golden years... from Mary Pickford to Frank Sinatra. It is well read as well, except for many mispronounced names. I find this common in narrators of show biz bios. Incorrect pronunciations such as director Michael Curtiz (Curteez) pronounced as "Curtis" (like Tony) and costume designer Omar Kiam (Kie am) pronounced "Kiym", will drive real film fans a bit crazy. But, as I say, it's a pleasant voice... a good listen!
