I’d like to share another amazing review HOLLYWOOD HUCKSTER – A Memoir of Hysterical Proportions just received.
5.0 out of 5 stars He Put the Heart in Hartigan, June 26, 2013
This review is from: HOLLYWOOD HUCKSTER – A Memoir of Hysterical Proportions (Kindle Edition)
In a way Mel Brooks created Hartigan and Garber – only he called them Bialystock and Bloom and located them on Broadway. Kevin and David possess a similar connection, with Kevin concocting the capers, the concepts and the cons, and David reluctantly, dutifully and successfully making them happen – to astonishing results. But Hartigan and Garber didn’t just charm little old ladies out of their checks; they pulled off a creative and financial shakedown of the movers and shakers of Hollywood in the 70’s and 80’s. Each chapter reads like another episode of their real-life sitcom, with the humor, heart, surprises, payoffs and payouts that engage their fans and make you want to tune in to their next adventure. Every twist and turn, turn-on and turn-off is here, and their truth is stranger than fiction and friction. When Kirk Gibson hit his dramatic World Series home run, legendary announcer Jack Buck exclaimed, “I can’t believe what I just saw.” Under finishing David Garber’s “Hollywood Huckster,” you are certain to shout, “I can’t believe what I just read!” Enjoy!
