Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Michael Hoey's view of Hollywood from a childhood as son of character actor Dennis Hoey, whose most famous role was as Inspector Lestrade in the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies. The son gets in to the business first as an actor, then becomes a film editor, working in movies and TV, and finds himself producing a Warners spring break movie featuring contract players from Waners TV shows then dominating television - Robert Conrad, Troy Donahue, Connie Stevens, and others. He lost his job with Warners right after, but his career advance, with Hoey bouncing back and forth between producing and editing. Best known are his Elvis movies, as a movie musical fan, his favorite job was producing the successful TV series, Fame.

It's interesting to see how Hoey's career developed, moving back and forth from film cutter to director to producer. which certainly shows he was versatile, no doubt a major assist.

Hoey shares stories about Elvis, the greedy Colonel Parker, Basil Rathbone, Jane Wyman, Bob Hope, Robert Blake, Charlton Heston, Walt Disney, and describes the making of many movies including the scifi movie he wrote and directed, Navy vs. Night Monsters with Mamie Van Doren.

Great book.

A great book about Hollywood and Elvis written by an insider. But don't expect to find much info about Basil Rathbone.
