THIS TIME, THIS PLACE My Life in War, the White House, and Hollywood

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Biography & Memoir • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Valenti's story is quintessentially American. Born into a poor immigrant family, he scraped earnings together to pay for night college and flew B-52s in WWII. His determination and intelligence earned him success in two fields: national politics and moviemaking. Arthur Morey's smooth narration allows Valenti's vivid storytelling to shine. With precise yet graceful articulation, Morey portrays Valenti's inside stories of President Lyndon Johnson and various Hollywood stars. Valenti was present when LBJ was sworn into office at the side of Mrs. Kennedy on Air Force One, and his account is memorable. Morey provides a straight reading of most of the book, yielding in places to subtle impersonations of some iconic voices, ranging from JFK to Marlon Brando.
