Editorial Reviews

Hollywood Independent
Hilarious. . . Spellbinding Stories.
Knoxville News Sentinel
A delight for people who like to know the inside tales of some of the old stars.
Los Angeles Daily News
The ratio of fresh to familiar is surprisingly high and even the twice-told tales retain some snap under Schochet's enthusiastic narration.
