This is a memoir written in the 1920's by Samuel Goldwyn, about his first 10 years in Hollywood. It is filled with personal anecdotes of the early silent film screen stars, directors and producers. I found it touching, humorous and informative. He doesn't dish much dirt, choosing rather to see the best in everyone and only touch lightly on their difficult personalities. This book has made me want to seek out the movies and stars spoken of and watch them. ( )
