Editorial Reviews

Review

“What might be most surprising in the pages of I Loved Her in the Movies is the streak of feminism that runs through his reflections on stardom, the nature of talent and the demands of a Hollywood career. Actors had it tough in the studio system, but actresses endured even more in a business that, Wagner notes, was run by and for men who expected women to be submissive.”
—Douglass K. Daniel, Associated Press

“Wagner reflects on a lifetime spent living on the silver screen, sharing intimate recollections working alongside and knowing some of our most beloved female stars. . . . Wagner discusses the way Hollywood female stars were marketed by studios and how the images of femininity changed over time, such as how the the 1940s femme fatale star—Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall, Barbara Stanwyck—gave way to the ‘sweater girls’ of the 1950s, such as Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield.”
—Forbes

“Wagner writes a valentine to the ‘female movie stars that defined my generation.’ . . . What emerges most strongly is Wagner’s sympathy and respect for the resilient women who had to fight harder than men to survive in Hollywood.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Wagner’s knowledge of Hollywood film history is prodigious. . . . The author is succinct and pithy at giving a sense/opinion of who these women were as people and what their strengths were as actresses. . . . Frothy and honest remembrances for gossipy movie fans.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for You Must Remember This

“An affectionate new memoir . . . like a guided tour of vintage Hollywood.”
Newsday
 
“[A] charming tribute to offscreen lives during the period many regard as Hollywood’s finest.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Wagner and [Eyman] offer a humorous, poignant, and sometimes juicy view of a vanished era.”
—Los Angeles Times

“In terms of grace and style, you couldn’t ask for a better tour director than actor Robert Wagner.”
—Douglass K. Daniel, The Associated Press

“With great affection and a twinkle in his eye, veteran actor Wagner recalls Hollywood’s glory days of the 1940s and early 1950s, when class, manners, friendship, and a code of values ruled the city of stars.”
Publishers Weekly
