Format: Hardcover
Anita Loos can always be counted on for wry humor when it comes to the glitzy world of early Hollywood. The author of "Gentlemen Prefer Blonds" was in the middle of the madness for years as a screenwriter and friend of the stars. She also hobnobbed with the Algonquin Roundtable and has funny commentary on people like H.L. Mencken. Always amusing to read her stuff. And her observation about Buster Keaton? Amen, sister!

This is a wonderful book full of frank anecdotes about Anita Loos and her experiences throughout Hollywood. Plenty of good gossip from the old school film days and tons of Anita's personal collection of letters, photos, telegrams, etc.

This book contains a lot of interesting stories about Hollywood actors but also about other artists. She knew everybody! She wrote a lot, but had plenty of time to socialize with famous people. The pictures are excellent. I liked her positive attitude to life. She was able to make fun about herself, which is always a good trait. She seemed to be a very beautiful woman, too. In some of the pictures she is more beautiful than the actresses she wrote for.

Good, dishy memoir of old Hollywood by one of the greatest screenwriters of all time. This duplicates a little material in a couple of her other books, but it's worth the read, She was there, she was who she was, and she was tough as nails -- until you realize that she let her leach of a husband steal most of her money and part of her credit. He was mentally ill, and she had the grace to recognize that in a time when mental illness wasn't the emotional get-out-of-jail card it is now.
