Robert Evans' The Kid Stays in the Picture is universally recognized as the greatest, most outrageous, and most unforgettable show business memoir ever written. The basis of an award-winning documentary film, it remains the gold standard of Hollywood storytelling.
With a new introduction by the legendary actor, producer, and Hollywood studio chief Robert Evans, The Kid Stays in the Picture is driven by a voice as charming and irresistible as any great novel.
An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one, least of all himself. Filled with starring roles for everyone from Ava Gardner to Marlon Brando to Sharon Stone, The Kid Stays in the Picture is sharp, witty, self-aggrandizing, and self-lacerating in equal measure.

I loved that it was narrated by the author. His tone made it all more real. The stories recounted were juicy and also useful lessons and background/history. Overall, a great listen.
Evans is a one of a kind storyteller. He's funny, wise, sad, and all manner of revealing. If you love movies, this behind the scenes autobiography is a MUST READ
Hollywood in the 60s & 70s was Silicon Valley. Taste, talent, hustle and balls won the day every time. This guy was also amazing and refreshing to watch and listen to in narration.
