In the introduction to his autobiography, Vincente Minnelli apologises

In the introduction to his autobiography, Vincente Minnelli apologises. He has an insecurity about writing of his life since he believes he has "tip-toed" through it, and he isn't interested in serving up gossip about the people he has encountered. He says he would rather be remembered for his knowledge of rococco furbelows than for anything else.

I Remember It Well book. Born Lester Anthony Minnelli, with his background in theatre, Vincente Minnelli was known as an auteur who always brought his stage experience to his films. The first movie that he directed, Cabin in the Sky (1943), was visibly influenced by the theater.

1903 - 1986, was an American stage director & film director. You can tell Minnelli really dotes on daughter Liza, and he even lets her voice into this book, quoting a lengthy interview he and she gave to a reporter. Liza sings well, but I've never enjoyed listening to her talk. I've never heard her say anything interesting about herself or her life. Minnelli, on the other hand, has many interesting things to say about his life and career. He begins with his boyhood and tracks his career to the present. His approach is much like that of star biographer Gary Fishgall.

Minnelli, Vincente; Hector Arce (1974). Schickel, Richard (1975). According to Peter Bart in his book The Gross, Minnelli is among the most successful film directors of all time and unquestionably the most successful director in the 1940s and 50s, his films having 11 first-place finishes on Variety’s opening release box office rankings. He was awarded France's highest civilian honor, the Commander Nationale of the Legion.

1903 - 1986, was an American stage director & film director.
A distant time, a vanished era. The big, brash, brassy and bold MGM TECHNICOLOR ® musical. Minnelli explains tricks of the movie trade and how some special effects were done (which today can be easily mimicked and surpassed with computer technology). For example, the transition from darkness to bursting light in the Ziegfeld Follies "Limehouse Blues" number or how Judy Garland vanishes and is replaced by a stunt double to ride the horse in the 'Sunny'' number from "Till The Clouds Roll By". Lavish color, great spectacle were hallmarks of his style. Minnelli was the master of three strip Technicolor® . Some say he went too far and his use of color was garish but I love it. In this book, he is surprisingly open about his life. It is his passages regarding his marriage to Garland that most interested me. He tried to hold the marriage together and his deep love and affection for Judy permeates those passages. There's a funny story (reminiscent of Toto in the Wizard of Oz) where Minnelli sees for the first time the power of stardom: Judy Garland's little dog runs away during their honeymoon in New York City. Distraught, Judy calls the NYPD and FDNY and announces, "This is JUDY GARLAND! Find my dog!" The whole city of New York is on the look out of the dog and, indeed, the fire department corners the dog near a dock. The dog jumps in the water but it gets fished out and returned to Judy. Minnelli is impressed by that kind of star power. The other Garland biographers have all, quite obviously, read Minnelli's book. Those other biographies about Judy Garland, in my opinion, take many cues from this book.
Well written, interesting and informative book about one of the greatest directors in history - and his family.
Including of course his wonderful daughter, Liza.
This is a well written and interesting biography. He manages to talk of his marriage to Judy Garland respectfully and thankfully does not sink to pulling punches [although you would've thought that he'd attend her funeral, if just for Liza]. There are some really good rare pictures of Garland and him on their honeymoon as well as many of Liza as a child.

Minnelli provides accurate detailed accounts of his varied and exciting career but unfortunately fails to do so on his private life. He gets many facts wrong [e.g. he claims that Liza couldn't walk until she was 2, however there are many pictures in many different books to prove otherwise] although this is understandable as memories become cloudy with the passing of time. My only other complaint is that he focuses way too much dteail on his work, the brith of his second child is glossed over compared to the lengthy description of his next movie.

I also liked the lack of bragging in his book which appears in so many autobiographies, it makes the book much easier to enjoy. I wondered why he doesn't mention when he was born but later found out that it was because he would take ten years off his age for his whole life.
Book arrived as promised in excellent condition.
If you're the voyeuristic type of star bio reader, you'll probably want to look elsewhere for the juicy details on Judy Garland's ups and downs. We learn only the bare outlines of Minnelli's life with Judy Garland and little about any other romantic interests. His attitude toward Judy was one of sympathy, but he really didn't know how to cope with her. She was a difficult person to live with. You can tell Minnelli really dotes on daughter Liza, and he even lets her voice into this book, quoting a lengthy interview he and she gave to a reporter. Liza sings well, but I've never enjoyed listening to her talk. I've never heard her say anything interesting about herself or her life.
Minnelli, on the other hand, has many interesting things to say about his life and career. He begins with his boyhood and tracks his career to the present. His approach is much like that of star biographer Gary Fishgall. Every job, every Broadway production, every film, and his role in completing each is described in satisfying but modest detail. He includes his failures as well as his successes. I find this much more interesting than who slept with whom.
