Item description for Honestly!: Confessions of a Hollywood Press Agent by Arthur Wilde...
For over sixty years, Arthur Wilde has been a motion picture publicist. In that time, he has been threatened with death, threatened with bankruptcy, threatened with blacklisting, and threatened with lawsuits. He's been seduced, beloved, betrayed, divorced, and fired more times than he can remember. In short, it's been quite a party.
Now, he has paused long enough to write down his memories of Hollywood as it was in the good old days. In his autobiography, "Honestly!", you can learn who were the wife beaters, the addicts, the charming rogues, the charmless prima-donnas, the saints, the geniuses, and the hapless victims.
It was Arthur's task to promote the positive images of Hollywood's screen idols and to hide the negative realities. He had to run interference and smooth out temperamental differences. He was generally the first person fired on any "difficult" set.
And of course, while the rogue's gallery of Hollywood was creating havoc with their shenanigans, Arthur Wilde, always the perfect gentleman, never, ever, got into any sort of trouble on his own..".Honestly!"
