    1. Evelyn Keyes gets down and dirty about what it's like to be married to several demanding men (one of her husbands was Artie Shaw, nuff said), and to work diligently in an industry without ever truly becoming a "Star." Earthy, brutally honest, and fascinating.

    2. Evelyn Keyes, recently deceased, was never a major player in Hollywood. She is best known for her role in Gone With the Wind as Scarlett O'Hara's sister Suellen, yet she was a beautiful and competent actress. Why did she never make a bigger name for herself? She explains the details here, her refusal of Harry Cohn's advances and her own destructive behavior led to a second rate career among many A-list names. Her friendship with Paulette Goddard, her marriages to John Huston, Mike Todd, and Arti [...]

    3. The book was in a Wall-Street-Journal list of five-best autobiographies by Hollywood actresses. I had not realized that Keyes was a novelist before writing her own tell-all story, nor that she had been so gainfully employed in acting, albeit not in outstanding roles, after "Gone With The Wind". Her Hollywood story sounds, at first, like so many others," and then I slept with, and then I slept with", not a matter of casting-couch demands, but of her own searching for relationships. She's attracte [...]

    4. Another book about the Hollywood experience of a naive but ambitious girl with bad taste in men. But she tells it well and doesn't flinch at sordid details, even when they are unflattering to herself. But i really got tired of it, and frustrated with her (oh no, you're not going to sleep with that one, too!). I was reading it because i was interested in her experiences in the film industry, but she said little about that once she was established. It made me not want to look at another autobiogra [...]

    5. A thrift store whim purchase that turned out to be one of the best Hollywood gossip reads ever. . e's a real iconoclast - she had 4 husbands and I wanted to be the fifth by the end. But in the light of day perhaps that wouldn't have been a good idea. . .

    6. Some high points, especially the tale of John Huston and the chimpanzee, but I grew weary of her self-destructive behavior with powerful men long before she did.

    7. I enjoyed this book. I did not think I would because it started out reading like a cheap romance novel in a couple of places but then you started feeling like you got to know Ms. Keyes and leared about her disasterous choices in men. You learn quite a bit about her personally but not alot about her professional life so the title is a little misleading. If you want to learn about how one person can singlehandedly make every wrong decision where men are concerned - well this is the book for you. I [...]

    8. Less about movies than five stormy relationships, and her life-learning experience, told with much candour. A smart and lively (female) person.

    9. Keyes writes of her affairs and marriages with John Houston, Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn, Artie Shaw, etc.

    10. This was a fun romp through all the bedrooms of fellow stars Ms. Keyes slept with!I assume she died happy. Interesting look at Hollywood in the 1930's and 1940's.

    11. Memoir of an ignorant slut becoming a more enlightened slut and finally realizing she can live without clinging to a man. And she clung to a lot of jerks along the way – Harry Cohn, Charles Vidor, John Huston, Mike Todd, Artie Shaw. A paragraph or two about how much fun it was to do Gone With the Wind.“All this chopping life up into sections and labelling them teen, middle-age and senior citizen is poppycock, I say. Life is one piece, a long silken ribbon, a steady flow of river, a super Int [...]

    12. Memoir (the first of two) by actress Evelyn Keyes, who appeared in many films from the late 1930s (memorably as Suellen O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind" as the book's title implies) and on the stage as late as 1970 in "No, No, Nanette". However, this book covers the beginning up through the end of the 1950s and spends much more time on Ms. Keyes' marriages and other relationships than it does on her career. At various times she was married to actor/director John Huston and clarinetist Artie Shaw, [...]
