If you like reading about the drinking/partying  habits of a bunch of dead people -- albeit famous dead people -- then this is your cup of poison. One gets a little tired of the variations on the same theme. Then there are the various cocktail recipes, supposedly those concocted by the above-mentioned dead people. Is this to tempt us to emulate them? Or is it merely filler? I got the impression it was the latter. The book is an extended exercise in driving a dead horse to drink.

A collection of short bios on seventy film stars: actors, directors and screenwriters. Centering on their alcoholic escapades while dishing dirt and gossip. Starting with the silent movie era and going into the 1970s it covers vignettes of the people along with famous LA nightclubs, cocktail recipes and the occasional movie. A lot of fun for those who like the stories of the Golden Days of Hollywood. It's not exactly the type of book you'd read cover to cover in one go but more of a pick up and read a couple of features at a time. It would make the perfect bathroom reader! I'm well read in this area and knew most of the bios and gossip, but many of the drunken escapades were new to me. Perfect for the movie buff who enjoys a cocktail or two.
