A startlingly candid on and off set memoir by a beautiful woman who made strong impressions in The Maltese Falcon and Dod Although I never completely cottoned to Mary Astor as an actress something about her appearance or manner unsettled me in a mild way she was a very good one and she's a VERY good writer Her career autobiography A LIFE ON FILM is filled with well turned phrases and terrific insight not only into her work but also into the interests of fans She does what precious few actor autobiographies do give the outsider a sense of what life as an actor is actually like She seems to have little movie star ego in the disagreeable sense and she paints intriguing pictures of both the process of making movies and the people with whom she worked Her descriptions of making THE GREAT LIE for which she won an Oscar and THE MALTESE FALCON are particularly fascinating This was a very enjoyable read
