Cotten's peak movie years were the Forties, and he eventually became one of the journeymen actors in the Sixties and beyond who made lucre in international productions, mainly. This may be why he does not have the same reputation or staying power as others. But you can hear his distinctive voice in the book itself, and he comes off as you would hope and expect: centered, reasonable, professional, a decent guy. And his latter happiness that came from his second marriage to Patricia Medina takes the book in a completely different direction.
Part two covers the wooing and successful capture of his second wife- Patricia Medina. But it lacks the joy and energy of part one. If fact, I found the chapter dealing with his trip to Russia a bore. Was also disappointed in that he had little to say about so many of the films he made later in life. But, part one makes up for it in a big way.
The hardcover book, which I read, is a little over 200 pages with the sections broken up almost equally.
