9780062228321: The Kid Stays in the Picture

As a high-rolling Paramount producer, Robert Evans was responsible for a handful of major Hollywood hits, including "Love Story" and "The Godfather". His bad-boy lifestyle was a gift to the gossip columnists. In the 1980s however, his cocaine habit led to penury, two criminal charges (one for conspiracy to murder) and self-commital to a mental institution. Now, having hit rock bottom, he is beginning to bounce back: he is producing films again and has regained some of the Tinsel Town status symbols, among them the house once owned by Garbo and the services of a butler. An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no-one, least of all himself. From Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner Jack Nicholson and Sharon Stone, here is Hollywood revealed by the producer who's seen and done it all.

'It's more than a must read. It's a must read again and again!' -- Time

'It's the wildest, most profane, most ridiculously riveting movie memoir ever!' -- Newsweek

'Sex, drugs, scheming movie stars . . . this story has it all . . . A real page turner proving that truth is juicier than fiction.' -- Good Morning America

'The best Hollywood memoir I've ever read.' -- Variety

From the Back Cover:

'The Kid Stays In The Picture' by Hollywood 'bad boy' Robert Evans is an intimate and fascinating account of his rise, fall and rise again in show business. The only actor ever to run a studio, Evans took Paramount from the basement to the penthouse with such movies as 'Rosemary's Baby', 'Love Story', 'The Godfather' and 'Chinatown'.
Robert Evans, the producer's producer, has seen and done it all. An extraordinary raconteur, he spares no one - least of all himself. From Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner and Jimmy Cagney to Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty and Sharon Stone, here is Hollywood revealed as never before. Laced throughout are his fascinating liaisons with some of the world's most beautiful women, including his marriage and divorce to Ali MacGraw.
