Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fascinating rise, fall and rise again of legendary producer Robert Evans.

This is one life story you'll never forget: a kid actor in New york on radio plays...popularizing "women in pants" at Evan-Picone...being discovered poolside at the Beverly Hills Hotel by Norma Shearer...becoming the first actor to ever run a motion picture studio...reviving the moribund Paramount Pictures...overseeing production of Love Story, The Godfather, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby, The Odd Couple...marriage to golden girl Ali McGraw and birth of son Joshua...long friendships with Nicholson, Beatty, and Hoffman....disgrace and drugs...the Cotton Club scandal...self-commitment and escape from a mental institution...and an eventual triumphant return to the catbird seat. An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one least of all himself, on this legendary no-holds-barred Hollywood journey.

Review:

"Evans paints a riveting, self-promoting picture of his 30-year career....Offering a real insider's view of Hollywood, Evans's memoir is easily worth the price of admission." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"It's more than a must read. It's a must read again and again!" Jeffrey Ressner, Time

Review:

"Don't even try to put it down!" Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Review:

"It's the wildest, most profane, most ridiculously riveting movie memoir ever!" Jack Kroll, Newsweek

Review:

"The best Hollywood memoir I've ever read." Mike Flemming, Variety

Review:

"Sex, drugs, scheming movie stars...this story has it all. A great read! A terrific book! A real page turner proving that truth is juicier than fiction." Joel Siegel, Good Morning America

Review:

"[A] killer read whose prose has the snap of the Catwoman's lash. (Grade: A)" Tim Appelo, Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"To me, the author's proper name is 'Notorious.' His autobiography? I'm afraid to read it!" Jack Nicholson

Synopsis:

Love Story...The Godfather...Chinatown...

No one had a hotter string of hits — or a more scandalous fall — than movie mogul and power player Robert Evans. From the top of the Paramount mountain to the bottom of the barrel and back, Evans omits nothing in the hottest tell-all since Julia Phillips.
