I have a hit-or-miss relationship with Cukor. Some of his most famous films, such as "Dinner at Eight," leave me cold, while I love some of his lesser-known works such as "The Marrying Kind" and "Les Girls."
Two things about Cukor struck me from this book. First, he was a tough guy in that he was fired from "Gone With the Wind" yet didn't obsess about this for the rest of his life. (From other books in this series, Robert Aldrich and Sam Peckinpah seemed never to let go of the fact that they had been fired from far lesser films, and Michael Powell just seemed obsessed with the bad reviews "Peeping Tom" received.)
The other thing about Cukor was that he stayed current to the end. It is something of a shock to find him talking about and appreciating "Annie Hall" and "Star Wars."
Definitely worth reading if you appreciate Cukor and his films.
