Hyperion Press, 1994. 6.5" x 9.5" FIRST EDITION, first printing (full number line). Unread, like new condition, clean and tight, unclipped dust jacket in very good condition, one small chip on spine edge. Dustjacket is an interesting clear plastic with simulated film frames overlaid on illustrated boards. An intimate, sometimes shocking, and fascinating account of legendary "bad boy" producer Robert Evans. From his early days in radio to popularizing "women in pants" as part of Evan-Picone, to being "discovered" by Norma Shearer and Darryl Zanuck, to, bizarrely enough, becoming the first actor to ever run a motion picture studio (Paramount Pictures). Stories include such movies as The Odd Couple, Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, The Godfather, and Chinatown, and the people: Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Jimmy Cagney, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Sharon Stone, Mike Todd, Francis Coppola, Mia Farrow, Faye Dunaway, Charles Bluhdorn, Stanley Jaffe, Ali MacGraw, and Phyllis George. 412 pages.
