Actor-Turned-Author Robert Wagner to Visit Greenwich Library, March 13
Veteran actor Robert Wagner will discuss his soon-to-be released book, You Must Remember This: Life and Style in Hollywood's Golden Age, an affectionate recollection of early Hollywood on Thursday, March 13 at 7 pm in the Cole Auditorium. This event is co-sponsored by Diane's Books which will provide copies for purchase and signing.
With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940s and early 1950s than Robert Wagner. Wagner revisits the houses, restaurants, and other haunts of Hollywood's elite, offering an intimate view of their lives on and off screen. He fondly recounts mythic figures simply entertaining at home among friends, away from the publicity machine and public eye that morphed into today's paparazzi culture.
Says Publisher's Weekly, "Although Wagner regales readers with tales of many of his Hollywood friends...he never stoops to kiss-and-tell gossip about the stars nor does he wax nostalgic about a past for which he desperately longs."
Wagner also discusses the business of Hollywood and its evolution from an industry once dominated by moguls to one run by agents, and examines the career arcs of his peers, carefully considering why some survived and others faded. Engaging and entertaining, You Must Remember This is Wagner's ode to a bygone age of incomparable style and legendary stars.
Robert Wagner is the star of such films as A Kiss Before Dying, The Longest Day, The Pink Panther, and most recently, the Austin Powers franchise. On television, he starred in It Takes a Thief (with Fred Astaire) and Hart to Hart (with Stefanie Powers). He has recently appeared on Two and a Half Men and NCIS. He is married to actress Jill St. John and lives in Aspen, Colorado.
