MR. & MRS. HOLLYWOOD Edie and Lew Wasserman and Their Entertainment Empire

by | Read by Tavia Gilbert

Biography & Memoir • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Lew and Edie Wasserman built the MCA Talent Agency into the global conglomerate Universal/MCA. Their story is the history of modern Hollywood from the late 1940s on. Sadly, while the facts of their lives are here, this sensationalized book does not reflect the graceful and genteel essence of the Wassermans. Tavia Gilbert has little to work with, and her overly dramatic narration does not enhance this account of the Wassermans' accomplishments. At best, she provides the book with precise enunciation. Of further note, quality control in the production is lacking: Even the most familiar Spanish-language street names, such as La Cienega Boulevard, are mispronounced. This is a disappointing listening experience of a story that possesses mammoth entertainment potential. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2013]
