From the dawn of the studio system to the decade it all came crashing down, Hedda Hopper was one of the Queens of Hollywood. Although she made her name as a star of the silent screen, she found her calling as a gossip columnist, where she had the ear of the most powerful force in show business: the public. With a readership of 20,000,000 people, Hopper turned nobodies into stars, and brought stars to their knees. And in this sensational memoir, she tells all.
In her career, Hopper crossed some of Hollywood's biggest bold-faced names, from Joan Crawford and Bette Davis to Charlie Chaplin and Katherine Hepburn, and her feud with rival gossip columnist Louella Parsons became the stuff of legend. In The Whole Truth and Nothing But, we get Hedda's side of the story - and what a story it is.
Hedda Hopper is portrayed by Judy Davis in the Ryan Murphy TV series Feud.

A great glimpse at the movie industry of the past.

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.

Film Buffs Rejoice

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!
