Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book,although on the long side, is very good. It keeps your interest.I liked the fact that it talked about every film Grant did and gave info about relationships on the set. I also liked how it had alot of quotes from Grant himself as well as quotes from those who knew him best.I liked the title because it describes Grant so well. I've always thought of him as a dark personality with a tinge of sadness in every smile.Bottom line: A book that indeed does Grant justice.
Adored him, even if he was older than my parents!
Nice perspective on Grant's life and loves..
