What do legends Groucho Marx, Bette Davis, W. C. Fields, and Alfred Hitchcock have in common? They're just four of the luminaries mentioned in Hollywood Anecdotes, the definitive oral history of film's Golden Era. This collection gathers some of the best stories ever recorded about the stars, directors, and producers who put the tinsel in Tinseltown. Read with customary charm and wit by one of America's favorite actresses, Debbie Reynolds, Hollywood Anecdotes brings back all your favorite memories of the silver screen's heyday.

"Boller and Davis seem to have mined every shiny nugget in the Hollywood Hills." (Time)
An older audiobook, back from the cassette days and when several of the subjects of the stories were still alive. The story tries to cram in a bit too much information in the relatively short time. Some 'anecdotes' were interesting though and Debbie Reynolds did seem to try hard and does a decent job as the narrator.
I'd recommend if on sale or for a somewhat short listen of 'old' Hollywood, its legends and folklore.
