An entirely enjoyable listening experience! Actor Robert Wagner provides both a rich history of Hollywood’s bygone era—its style, architecture, haberdashery, and ethics—and a personal memoir. While each of Wagner’s 84 years may be heard in his weathered voice, his enthusiasm and class are palpable. Hollywood’s Golden Era is accurately compared and contrasted with the bizarre, security-focused nature of today’s celebrity. Though a few mispronunciations should have been caught in production, Wagner’s consistent delivery whisks listeners from the Bel-Air Country Club to the Polo Lounge and the personal homes of the Zanucks and the Warners. The whole package is as effervescent as a glass of Veuve Cliquot, and listeners may want to toast an era never to come again. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
