Talk about A Private View

Enthusiastically recommended by a friend who shares an interest in Hollywood history, I'm less enthusiastic, though I almost gave this book four stars. Most memorable is information re the author's ex-husband, David O. Selznick, who had a very good run in the late 1930s, fueled by benzedrine, gambling, womanizing and general inattention to his family. The story of two complicated Hollywood families, the Mayers of MGM-fame and the Selznicks, until Irene pulled out at the point at which Selznick's career was (retrospectively) heading down. Downsides: (1) the author generally eschews dating major events, so you either come away cloudy about the timing and sequence of major Hollywood and/or personal events, or you spend time cross-checking with Wikipedia; (2) some passages are obscure as to meaning; and (3) this may or may not be a very truthful account, but it is one person's vantage on reality. One interesting aspect is the considerable cross-fertilization of the major studios in the 1930s, and some other Hollywood "heroes", e.g., Irving Thalberg, come into view at least for their professional achievements.

One of the best autobiographies I have read. If you have any interest in MGM(and her father, L.B. Mayer), early Hollywood, David Selznick (Gone With the Wind producer), Broadway and A Streetcar Named Desire, this book is for you. Irene had contact with a veritable who is who in Hollywood and Broadway. Irene comes of as a very likable and private woman. I would like to have known her.

A Private View is what you get when you read though the pages of Irene Mayer Selznick's telling of her life experiences. It's Genuine Living, the stuff movies are made of! The GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD are the ones that get told through God's Creation, We, the people. I felt part of it all as Irene described various events. It is easily comfortable, and gives excellent insight into the times, as well as the history of the entertainment makers.

I ordered it so I could find out more about Selznick's wife. The book gives you a view of the wealthy lived in the 30's, but the book is not exciting to read. It is okay. It got here on time.

If you ever wondered what it was like in early Hollywood, there are few books better than this, from this major person. Irene Selnick is the genuine item. A classy dame with a head for art and business. If only others like her had the ability to write their own biography. It doesn't get much better than this.
Ichalote
I really enjoyed this book because it is about the business of the old Hollywood studios and its effect on a conservative immigrant family. The writer's father, Louis Mayer, tried to protect his family from the many unstable and ambitious people who surrounded him. It's for you, the reader, to decide if he was ultimately successful. The insider's perspective offered by the author is refreshing. Never has the business of glamour and fantasy seemed more commonplace. She could have been writing about any successful enterprise in America. It's not about movie stars.

A very interesting, informative and captivating read. Irene Mayer Selznick conveys very fascinating stories about the foundation of the movie industry in California from the perspective of the daughter of Louis B. Mayer and the wife of David O. Selznick. A must read for any golden era of Hollywood fan.
A very, very interesting biography of one of Louis B. Mayer's daughter. Besides being a famous daughter, she was very talented on her own right and, of course, married another well-know movie mogul, David O. Selznick. I am almost finished, so I may add something, but, so far it's a very good read.
