Summary
"In a career that has spanned more than sixty years Robert Wagner has witnessed the twilight of the Golden Age of Hollywood and the rise of television, becoming a beloved star in both media. During that time he became acquainted, both professionally and socially, with the remarkable women who were the greatest screen personalities of their day. I Loved Her in the Movies is his intimate and revealing account of the charisma of these women on film, why they became stars, and how their specific emotional and dramatic chemistries affected the choices they made as actresses as well as the choices they made as women. Among Wagner's subjects are Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Gloria Swanson, Norma Shearer, Loretta Young, Joan Blondell, Irene Dunne, Rosalind Russell, Dorothy Lamour, Debra Paget, Jean Peters, Linda Darnell, Betty Hutton, Raquel Welch, Glenn Close, and the two women whom he ultimately married, Natalie Wood and Jill St. John. In addition to offering perceptive commentary on these actresses, Wagner also examines such topics as the strange alchemy of the camera--how it can transform the attractive into the stunning--and how the introduction of color brought a new erotic charge to movies, one that empowered these actresses to become aggressively sexual beings in a way that black-and-white films had only hinted at. Like Wagner's two previous bestsellers, this book is a privileged view behind the scenes at some of the most beloved women in show business, as well as an insightful look at the cinematic and romantic attraction that created their magic."--
