Hilarious! Robert Evans does it with style. The audio CD is tops, though. If you have the opportunity to listen to it, do it. One of my two favorite stories involve Warren Beatty arriving at Evan's house with a copy of the poster for Heaven Can Wait, which he was very proud of. The poster showed Beatty in a track suit with angel wings floating over his back. When asked what Evans thought of it, he gave Beatty shit because his crotch was flat. "Where's the buldge? It looks like you're sportin' a pussy." Beatty, ever the egomaniac, called the studio and at great expense had them trash the posters and reprint new ones with a bulge. My second favorite story is actually a quote. When his then wife Ali McGraw decided to divorce Evans because she'd fallen in love with Steve McQueen during the Getaway, Evans said, "all the time she was married to me, she was thinking of Steve McQueen's cock."

Evans. Tells it like it is.
