Reviews

Praise for Hank and Jim: The Fifty-Year Friendship of Henry Fonda and James Stewart
"[A] remarkably absorbing, supremely entertaining joint biography of two Hollywood legends."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Scott Eyman has a gift for exploring subjects we think we know, then deepening and enriching that knowledge through diligent research and his gift of observation. This book is no exception. Henry Fonda and James Stewart have never been captured so well, nor has their extraordinary fifty-year friendship."
--Leonard Maltin

John Wayne: The Life and Legend
"Authoritative and engaging."
--Peter Bogdanovich, The New York Times Book Review

"Deeply researched and totally absorbing."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Wayne's intimates have told Eyman things here that they've never told anyone else."
--The Los Angeles Times

Lion of Hollywood: The Life and Legend of Louis B. Mayer
"Wonderfully readable . . . [Eyman] tracks Mayer's rise and fall with exhaustive detail and novelistic sweep."
--Manohla Dargis, New York Times Books Review

"Anyone interested in filmmaking, then or now, should read Eyman's book at least twice."
--Robert Osborne, The Hollywood Reporter

Print the Legend: The Life and Times of John Ford
"Eyman has emerged as one of the most distinguished and reliable of popular film historians."
--Washington Post Book World

Ernst Lubitsch: Laughter in Paradise
"The book is written with the kind of intuitiveness that's rooted in knowledge and affection. Eyman's scholarship gives the reader pleasure."
--Pauline Kael
