I read this book because I ve actually seen a number of movies directed by Minnelli So I figured at least I d know what was being talked about And I read the whole thing cover to cover Which makes it exasperating to have to condemn the book s sloppy writing and editing is it the author s fault or the editor s fault I ll let them duke it out for egg on the face I ve washed my hands of the whole affair But I can say with no word of lie that the book can lose 50 pages 50 pages or without losing any of the essential material There s too much repetition in there Point like the Bible which sometimes offers two consecutive takes on the same story with different details and shading ie Creation this book much than once proceeds from what appears to be a finished section to a re start of the same subject with many identical details Were they alternate drafts of the same section but both were mistakenly retained Figure it outPoint the author does too much grouping of things out of seuence for my taste He jumps too much to maintain a narrative line When you think we ve moved ahead 5 years and certain films are things of the past we are suddenly discussing the preparations for one of those films as if it just leaped out of the mouth of LB Mayer WhateverPoint Bizarre nonsensetwo examples that stick out if I cared the list could be much longer1 The section about The Bad and the Beautiful ends with a multi paragraph discussion of the issues regarding filming the movie in color That s it What is left out is the simple fact that the movie was filmed in BLACK AND WHITE WTF2 A section focusing on the aging director s relationship with daughter Liza talks about being together on the night of her first Academy Award nomination She lost End of chapter The next chapter begins with her already receiving her Oscar for Cabaret Wouldn t it have been nice to know what her relationship with Daddy was like for the win as well as the lossPoint The material in the appendix could have been worked into the body of the work for a comprehensive take on the works movies themselves And certain details repeated separately but ad nauseum could be axed out and honed for maximum effect in one spot ie as Minnelli knew from Judy s mental condition Okay we get it he dealt with complex psychological issues in his films and one of his wives was kooky Stop repeating it all over the placeIt is sporadically illuminating scattershot piecemeal skirting contradiction exasperatingly incomplete Read at your own risk Although as the author reminds us than once his is the first attempt at a real biography of the director Nice try
