AUDREY AND BILL

AUDREY AND BILL                               EDWARD Z. EPSTEIN

Here for the first time is the complete, captivating story of an on-set romance that turned into a lifelong love story between silver screen legends Audrey Hepburn and William Holden. In 1954, Hepburn and Holden were America’s sweethearts. Both won Oscars that year and together they filmed Sabrina, a now-iconic film that continues to inspire the worlds of film and fashion.

Audrey & Bill tells the stories of both stars, from before they met to their electrifying first encounter when they began making Sabrina. The love affair that sparked on-set was relatively short-lived, but was a turning point in the lives of both stars.Audrey & Bill follows both Hepburn and Holden as their lives crisscrossed through to the end, providing an inside look at the Hollywood of the 1950s, ’60s, and beyond. Through in-depth research and interviews with former friends, co-stars, and studio workers, Audrey & Bill author Edward Z. Epstein sheds new light on the stars and the fascinating times in which they lived.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
I found this book lacking more content. This is just from my perspective. The story does a little back story of both their lives and leads into how they met at a party and on the set of Sabrina. Goes into how they have a brief love affair and really how he would leave his wife and children for her and she was happy that he would but because he could not have any more children they broke it off. This book really does not portray anyone in a good light. Audrey Hepburn, William Holden, and even Humphrey Bogart. I think that is what got me the most and I just could not get past any of that. Not that I put any of these people higher than someone else but really they just made today starts the same. At Bogart was still with Bacall until he passed and maybe he was starting to get sick and that is why he was not in a good mood. Don’t know? Do know I thought it was going to be a different type of book. I got this book from netgalley.com. I give this 2 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
