    • Abstract:
      Journalists James Bawden and Ron Miller spent their careers interviewing the greatest stars of Hollywood's golden age. They visited Lee Marvin at home and politely admired his fishing trophies, chatted with Janet Leigh while a young Jamie Lee Curtis played, and even made Elizabeth Taylor laugh out loud.In You Ain't Heard Nothin'Yet, Bawden and Miller return with a new collection of rare interviews with iconic film stars including Henry Fonda, Esther Williams, Buster Keaton, Maureen O'Sullivan, Walter Pidgeon, and many more. The book is filled with humorous anecdotes and incredible behind-the-scenes stories. For instance, Bette Davis reflects that she and Katharine Hepburn were both considered for the role of Scarlett O'Hara but neither was'gorgeous enough'for the part; Janet Leigh analyzes the famous shower scene in Psycho (1960), which was shot in seven days and gave the actress nightmares for years; and Jimmy Stewart describes Alfred Hitchcock as a'strange, roly-poly man, interested only in blondes and murder.'Popular horror film stars from Lon Chaney Jr. to Boris Karloff and Vincent Price are also featured in a special'movie monsters'section.With first-person accounts of Hollywood life from some of the most distinguished luminaries in the history of American cinema, this entertaining book will delight classic movie fans.

Reviews

LJ Reviews 2017 September #1

What do you get when you have two old friends with over 50 years of experience interviewing stars? Longtime TV critics Bawden and Miller's Conversations with Classic Film Stars: Interviews from Hollywood's Golden Era (2016). This second installment in a series of the authors' collected interviews span from the Great Stone Face Buster Keaton to the Million Dollar Mermaid Esther Williams. The book's format is very similar to that of the previous volume, with a setting of the scene, the interview, and a brief afterword. But what sets this title apart from the first book is the focus on leading men and ladies, horror stars, and disciplined character actors who learn from the film stars at the end of their careers, as most were working in television at the time. It is obvious that Miller and Bawden enjoy their subject matter and have had many great experiences with Hollywood royalty, making this book a breezy, delightful read. VERDICT Readers interested in film studies, film history, particularly the golden age of Hollywood will benefit from seeing it through the eyes of those who have seen it all.—Jennifer Thompson, Richland Lib., Columbia, SC
