"A highly entertaining little book (just over 100 pages) full of humorous, yet fascinating stories from his long life and career. He has worked with so many Hollywood legends. I think his friend, actress and singer Shirley Jones sums it up on the back cover: 'Alan's book is full of sweet and funny anecdotes. It's great fun to go back in time with him as he introduces us to an era filled with movie stars and characters you won't soon forget!'"
