Descripción

Robert Evans' The Kid Stays in the Picture is universally recognized as the greatest, most outrageous, and most unforgettable show business memoir ever written. The basis of an award-winning documentary film, it remains the gold standard of Hollywood storytelling.
 
With black-and-white photographs from the author's archive and a new introduction by the legendary actor, producer, and Hollywood studio chief Robert Evans, The Kid Stays in the Picture is driven by a voice as charming and irresistible as any great novel.
 
An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one, least of all himself. Filled with starring roles for everyone from Ava Gardner to Marlon Brando to Sharon Stone, The Kid Stays in the Picture: A Notorious Life is sharp, witty, and self-aggrandizing, and self-lacerating in equal measure.

This is a must-read for fans of American cinema and classics of the canon, including The Odd Couple, Rosemary’s Baby, Love Story, The Godfather, and Chinatown.

    Is this the best book ever?Not a chance.Will you enjoy it?You bet your ass.Does Robert Evans skip over the embarrassing details of his life?Sure some of them.Does he talk out of both sides of his mouth?Yeah well who doesn't.Does he say he isn't about to talk about his sexual escapades then say he is sure he "scored" better than Warren Beatty? Yeah.Is the audiobook they way to this book?Absolutely.Does Evans do credible impressions of Jack Nicholson, Cary Grant, and other Hollywood figures?I have to say yes.Does he like to ask rhetorical; questions then answer them?Yup.

    Robert Evans produced "The Godfather" and "Rosemary's Baby" and was married to Ali McGraw. His autobiography is a litany of name-dropping and self-aggrandising and he has an ego the size of a planet. The first chapter or so, I found these things a problem, but then I was drawn in by this larger than life character and found myself rooting for him when things turn bad. Even if you do have to take some of it with a large pinch of salt, Evans has lived an exciting life, through one of the best periods in Hollywood filmmaking, and this makes for a great biography.

    This is about how important and marvelous Evans is. Lots of junk about hollywood people
