5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST HAVE for any GWTW fan! Worth every penny!, 19. Februar 2000
This book is incredible (as are all of Mr. Bridges books). I am a huge fan of the film and own most of the books published about it and its stars, but this book contains photos I have never seen. It is a pleasure to browse through and read beginning to end! Fabulous!

1.0 von 5 Sternen HORRIBLY WRITTEN!!!! It made me really angry!, 29. Oktober 1999
I read this book after just finishing "Severed" by John Gilmore...and what a letdown! "Severed" left me wanting to learn more about "The Black Dahlia" and this book just made me sick. First off, I do not know what to think of Janice's assertions about repressed memory. I am in a psychology course in college right now and the professor says that "repression" has never been proven. But I believe Knowlton had to endure some kind of abuse to come up with this stuff, because it is VERY disgusting (I MEAN GRAPHICALLY DISGUSTING). The book makes me angry in so many ways. First off there is this insinuation that Elizabeth Short got what she deserved. Knowlton accuses her of physical and sexual abuse. Also the book assumes the readers are ignorant...for example every time something can not be backed up factually (and that is most of the time) it is blamed on a cover up, lost documents, lies of friends/families, and "gaps" in the recovery of Jan's memories. But the thing that really got me annoyed is that the book is written in this horribly sick, sarcastic tone...for example, an anacronym for Jan's sexual abuse was once referred to as "daddy's love". The whole book is written in terms like that and it made me sick. I am not a very cynical person and I usually can give someone the benefit of the doubt, but this was too much. You have to wonder if this was such a painful real thing for Janice Knowlton to experience, why she had her story written for the world to see? If any of this stuff had come from my mind, repressed or not, I would run and hide!!!!

Severed: The True Story of the Black Dahlia Murder
von John Gilmore

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, enthralling!, 14. September 1999
I read this book in just a few days because it is so completely enthralling that you can not put it down! I love the fact that this book told about Elizabeth Short's life and allowed the reader to see her as a person and not just as the victim of this SICK and SENSELESS crime. In other reviews on Amazon, people have been criticizing the inaccuracy of some details in this book, but if you read it, you see that everything Gilmore writes makes sense, especially the conclusion he comes to about who the actual murderer was. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great look at Hollywood style icons, 20. Juli 1999
This is a lovely book with wonderful photographs of Hollywood fashion icons. Another thing that is great about this book is that it features those who are not as popularly remebered, such as Delores Del Rio, along with more popular icons such as Audrey Hepburn. Great book! Highly recommended!


Forever Dobie: The Many Lives of Dwayne Hickman
Forever Dobie: The Many Lives of Dwayne Hickman
von Dwayne Hickman
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and hilarious, 8. Februar 1999
Dwayne Hickman is best known for his time on "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" as the title character. However, as this book demonstrates, his career did not begin and end with Dobie. He was an extremely reluctant child actor, a determined college student, a supporting player on "The Bob Cummings Show", Dobie, a Las Vegas entertainment coordinator for a hotel, a successful dinner theatre actor, a CBS executive, and a writer/director. No matter what other roles he played on screen or off he can not escape being Dobie. Having been around the industry virtually his entire life, Hickman tells stories about some of Hollywood's stars as well as personal antecdotes that make the book hilarious. Now happily married for the third time with a young son ( he has a grown son from marriage #1), Hickman has finally made peace with the fact that he will be "Forever Dobie". The book is fun to read, intersting, and will make you laugh out loud! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
