Reviews

"A very entertaining and exciting book, bull of fascinating details, not only about the Hollywood movie art and business, but about the New York theatre as well. Deeply interesting material about the 'red scare, ' all with an absence of bitterness. A real picture of how studio directors worked -- the freedom of creation and the collaboration." -- Bertrand Tavernier, New York Film Critics Award-winning director

"A workmanlike job from an admirably hard worker." -- Publishers Weekly

"Many of the stories Sherman tells are quite amusing and give insight into the lives of revered silver-screen idols such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford." -- Journal of the West

"Offers intelligent discourses on writing and directing, taking the reader through the filmmaking process from 1939 through 1966.... With its revealing stories of the stars and its enlightening personal perspective on directing, Studio Affairs is recommended for both movie fans and movie makers." -- Curio

"One of the great craftsmen from the old studio system, Vincent Sherman writes straight from the heart.... Many colorful insights into Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and the other stars he directed." -- Oliver Stone


"Those seeking a portrait of Hollywood's seedy underbelly won't find it here. What Sherman has written is far more unusual: a frank, detailed, eminently clear record of the exhausting, exhilarating business of making films." -- Kirkus Reviews
