Descripción del producto
"[Peter Bogdanovich] knows practically everything about the movies...this book is among the richest (and most delightful) ever written about Hollywood. Deeply elegiac."
-Ben Schwarz, Atlantic Monthly
-Alan Moores, Booklist "[Bogdanovich] treats his subjects with sympathy throughout. What comes through is Bogdanovich's abiding love of cinema..."
-Library Journal "Those who like classic movies will fall in love with this book...[and] find themselves wishing for more."
-Publisher's Weekly "Just as he did with Who the Devil Made It?, Peter Bogdanovich is keeping history alive with Who the Hell's In It? He was there at the crossroads, between the Old and New Hollywoods, as an actor, then as a repertory programmer, a critic, a director, and a confidante. And always as a fan, whose love for movies has only increased over the years. There are so many wonderful memories contained in these pages, so many lovingly rendered details, so many engrossing stories. And somehow, all of the actors and actresses here, from Brando to Clift, from John Wayne to John Cassavetes, seem at once human and larger than life. Who the Hell's In It? is indispensable."
-Martin Scorsese "What a treat this book is. Funny, intimate, thoughtful, surprising. And one helluva read. The conversations and opinions contained here are as informative as they are refreshing . . . These are the true legends who earned the title legitimately. With this book, their alchemy is preserved for posterity."
-Rex Reed "A completely unique, moving book full of Bogdanovich's well-known expertise and limitless affection for anyone and anything to do with good movies."
-Wes Anderson "A wonderful book, both personal and partisan, by a true enthusiast and an insider, who is not only one of the great chroniclers of the movies but one of its most gifted practitioners."
-Paul Theroux "Peter Bogdanovich has elicited the humanity and personality behind the Personality that became the essential building block of stardom. Why was Marion Morrison John Wayne? The book gives us many insights-but never on the level of gossip or psychiatry. And to hear actors such as these, legends and monuments most of them, discuss their craft, their workmanship, very simply their job-you never see that."
-David Chase " If you love movies, I bet you'll love this book."

The Cary Grant chapter is excellent.and so is the Jerry Lewis chapter although I have never been a Lewis fan.
I am reading the John Wayne chapter and was amused just now at the evidence that Bogdanovich is a New Yorker and no sailor as, on page 284, he mentions Wayne and John Ford's sailing excursions to Catalina Island and helpfully adds in parentheses [Panama] when Wayne comments on the time he used to spend at "the Isthmus" which is, of course, at Catalina, not Panama.
You can't know everything. I think "Who the Devil Made it" is a bit better but this is very enjoyable. Highly recommended if you are a classic movie fan.
But, thankfully, some of chapters are endearing (John Wayne, James Stewart, and especially Cary Grant ) and Bogdanovich's love of all things movies comes through clearly. Not nearly as good as WHO THE DEVIL MADE IT, but still something for Hollywood bluffs to enjoy.
