    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hollywood Stories the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the little snippets of info and quick stories of the talent involved with filming everything from Birth of a Nation, Intolerance to Gladiator, Jaws and Unforgiven.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humor and trivia of the history of film.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not as annoyed at the voice as much, but "Goodellows"? Narration doesn't necessarily require expertise of the subject, but there were many instances of names, movie titles, etc. that were bungled. At some point there should be some quality checking, right? Someone in the studio who may have said --umm... maybe we should pronounce things correctly?

    The music in between the anecdotes to tell you the joke was over is horrible. If I hear the Raiders of the Lost Ark story about Indy shooting the guy in the market instead of fighting him one more time I'm going to hear that stupid little 2 second music clip banging around in my head.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, just fun to hear the mini stories.
