Review Moviola by Garson Kanin

You think you heard the Hollywood story The gossip the scandals the dreams and the deals the shoestring beginnings. Entertaining and also intriguing at times Kanin veers sometimes precariously between first and third person narrative and there seem to be a few narrators including the writer a character he often talks to and the omniscient narrator but this allows for many entirely imagined scenes and character insights through a peek on the set of Flesh and the Devil with Greta Garbo and John Gilbert for examplePlease give this a read if you re interested in the beginnings of the movie industry in America Greta Garbo Gone With The Wind the movie and Marilyn Monroe Many other famous names and scandals make an appearance too
