    The Kid Stays in the Picture

    Hollywood's Robert Evans, "the producer's producer," spares no one - least of all himself - in his gripping autobiography detailing his rise, fall, and resurrection. Hear revealing tales of movie legends, including Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, and Sharon Stone. Laced throughout are stories of this bad boy's liaisons with some of the world's most beautiful women, including ex-wives Ali McGraw and Phyllis George. Evans offers a look at the lurid, dark years of the '80s, chronicling his cocaine bust, his implication in "The Cotton Club Murders," and his self-committal and escape from a mental hospital. This shockingly candid account was hailed by Variety as one of the best Hollywood memoirs ever published.
