So, You Want to Be in Pictures: The Making of Hollywood Idols by Tommy Lightfoot Garrett
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


So, You Want To Be In Pictures is a new styled celebrity biographical series that will feature some of the greatest movie stars in history, but will also chronicle the lives of some Television stars, stage stars and those enduring figures that we are still fascinated by. This book was a labor of love by the author, Tommy Garrett. Garrett works in the entertainment business and has for decades. He hosts a classic Television show, does entertainment news on Australian radio and among many other duties in the biz, he is an entertainment publicist who has known and met many legendary stars and has even represented them. This book is filled with personal anecdotes, stories in first, second and third person, but also one that tries to explain why people choose to become idols in the entertainment industry and how it rips some of them apart from their families, their friends and sometimes their own souls. But overall, it's an uplifting book that admires and showcases the positive attributes of stars like: Henry Fonda, Charlton Heston, Gregory Peck, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Jane Wyman, Deanna Durbin, Simone Simon, Phyllis Diller, Janet Leigh, John Gavin, John Wayne, Eartha Kitt, Joan Fontaine, Cary Grant, Don Rickles, Judy Garland, Jane Powell, Bob Hope, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Doris Day, Tab Hunter, Clint Walker, Montgomery Clift, Debbie Reynolds, Loretta Young, Barbara Stanwyck, Ann Sheridan, Luise Rainer, Beverly Garland, Rex Reason, Yul Brynner, Glenn Ford, Ann Blythe, Patricia Neal, Eva Marie Saint, Eileen Fulton, Bob Barker, Ronald Reagan, Clarice Taylor, Ruta Lee, Joan Collins, Charles Bronson, Rhonda Fleming, Anna Lee, Darlene Conley, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier, Lena Horne, Vincent Price, Olivia deHavilland, Boris Karloff and Sidney Poitier. So, You Want To Be In Pictures is the first in four series of books on the subject of Hollywood Icons. It is a good read, filled with entertaining stories of the great actors and actresses of today and yesterday.
