My favorite era in film is the New Hollywood. In general, I love everything about the 70's but the American films during that time were untouchable. Robert Evans really was the forefront of that movement. He produced Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, The Godfather and Chinatown to name a few. Robert Evans has an incredible story and the way he tells it in The Kid Stays in the Picture is irresistible.
This is not only the best book I've read about Hollywood (Though shouts out to Easy Riders, Raging Bulls. Seriously), but one of the best books I've read ever. I'd recommend this to anyone. You don't have to be a film buff who wishes he grew up in the 70's so he could've seen the first run of The Last Detail to know that Robert Evans' story is incredible.
