Overview

The legendary actor and bestselling author of Pieces of My Heart offers a nostalgic look at Hollywood’s golden age

With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940s and early 1950s than Robert Wagner. You Must Remember This is Wagner’s ode to a bygone age, to its incomparable style and how it was displayed, and to its legendary stars.

Wagner revisits the houses, restaurants, and other haunts of Hollywood’s elite, offering an intimate view of their lives on and off screen. He fondly recounts mythic figures simply entertaining at home among friends, away from the publicity machine and public eye that morphed into today’s paparazzi culture. Wagner also discusses the business of Hollywood and its evolution from an industry once dominated by moguls to one run by agents, and examines the career arcs of his peers, carefully considering why some survived and others faded.

Engaging and entertaining, You Must Remember This is a window into the splendors of an erstwhile era and an opportunity for readers to live vicariously through one its most beloved leading men.

“In terms of grace and style, you couldn’t ask for a better tour director than actor Robert Wagner.”
~Douglass K. Daniel, Associated Press
 
” [A] charming tribute to off-screen lives during a period many may regard as Hollywood’s finest.”
~Kirkus Reviews

“[You Must Remember This] takes you into the palatial mansions, castles and luxurious houses of the stars in great detail. It will become a great reference book for all lovers of silent and talkie movies and the actors and the actresses who peopled those homes. Fairbanks, Pickford and Chaplin, they are all here amongst many others.”
~Ann McDonald, RedCarpetCrash.com
 
“With great affection and a twinkle in his eye, veteran actor Wagner recalls Hollywood’s glory days of the 1940s and early 1950s, when class, manners, friendship, and a code of values ruled the city of stars.”
~Publishers Weekly
