Acquainted both socially and professionally with many of the stars at the end of Hollywood's Golden Era and beyond, actor Robert Wagner offers a warm reading of his nuanced, poignant, and thoughtful reflections on what made these women legendary. Listeners learn more detail than is generally available about many vintage actresses now seen primarily in Turner Classic Movies. Sloppy production values hurt an otherwise strong narration--the listener is very much aware of places where the narration was stopped and restarted. While Wagner's age does impact the vitality of his reading, overall, his voice rings true, comforting, and emphatic. Fans of vintage Hollywood will enjoy being regaled with stories and reminiscences of Betty Hutton, Rosalind Russell, Betty Davis, and many, many others.
