    1. Added 9/26/13.I first saw this book advertised on the TCM-TV Channel (Turner Classic Movies). Published in 2013.I borrowed this book from the library in January 2015. I thought it would be more entertaining than it is. However, I'm only on p. 20 of the regular print edition. So far, the only impression I get is that Greg Bautzer worked his way up by getting to know the people in the business and becoming their lawyer. So far it's just names, no drama. That's non-fiction for you!I'll give it a fe [...]

    2. The growth of a young divorce attorney into a legal titan should have made a fascinating book, but the “just the facts” approach makes it a rather pedestrian read. Greg Bautzer was an athletic, good-looking guy who started small in 1930s Los Angeles and eventually became the major rainmaker of the Wyman-Bautzer firm of the 1970s and 80s. He’s the guy who told Bugsy Siegel to shut up and sit down; he was Howard Hughes’ extremely confidential advisor; he masterminded Kirk Kerkorian’s hos [...]

    3. Just finished The Man Who Seduced Hollywood – wow, its awesome! So well researched – completely engaging from start to finish. Greg Bautzer was an unbelievable character – like a superhuman stud dealmaker. Truth is truly wilder than fiction. Bautzer's life story - and the narrative of this book - is movie-worthy. Incredibly well-done and highly recommended.The Man Who Seduced Hollywood: The Life and Loves of Greg Bautzer, Tinseltown's Most Powerful Lawyer

    4. Just got better and betterNot the typical book I read, but had been in the cue for so long I figured why not I can always quit reading it. Loved it mainly because he was a real person and it is hard not to admire so much of what he did despite his flaws. All the history through the years makes it one of the best Hollywood stories you could concieve. His life would make a good miniseries for TV. . Thumbs all the way up

    5. It's hard enough to tell the story of a "great" man or woman who performed, created, or led. It's nearly impossible to tell a compelling, coherent story of a person who facilitated. Now, add to that the roadblocks presented by principles of attorney-client confidentiality, which bar or at least dissuade the subject and those near to him from talking much about what went on in private. Despite these obstacles, James Gladstone has done a masterful job presenting a fun, informative, and compelling [...]

    6. Greg Bautzer was a fixture at Hollywood parties and functions for decades. He's popped up in so many biographies and history books that he blends into the background, a smiling enigma. A strikingly handsome well-dressed guy in a sea of also handsome well-dressed but slightly more known people. So I found this book, while it feels a bit thin (probably because so many who knew him are now dead), an extremely nice addition to my library.He dated practically everyone: Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, Joa [...]

    7. This book is not at all what I expected--I was looking for interesting behind-the-scene stories about Hollywood stars. Instead what we get is a lawyer author who gives reference-book style facts that he mostly gets elsewhere to tell the story of a lying, cheating, two-timing Hollywood lawyer. It's all told very carefully (as a lawyer would do) so that it's stripped of anything interesting. The parts of the book that involve stars (there aren't a lot) reveal nothing behind the scenes that hasn't [...]

    8. This man sure did know how to seduce Hollywood.The man who knew how to seduce Hollywood was about a great lawyer back in the day of representing Marion Davies, Franchot Tone, Jeanne Crain,Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas, Ingrid Bergman, Nancy Sinatra, Howard Hughes, and not to mention he was involved with most of the women in Hollywood and engaged with a few, like at one time Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, he wasn't just a pretty face in Hollywood he was a great lawyer, he knew how to win and he knew j [...]

    9. I can't say I didn't enjoy it, though the writing style is very simplistic. This is pretty much a straight up biography of a very powerful old school Hollywood lawyer, Greg Bautzer. He certainly had connections. The book gets very repetitive in parts. Bautzer seduced women! Lots of them! He was so good looking, etc. But again, he was influential and the book seems well researched. The author seems to have been seduced by the memory of Bautzer. In parts it reads as fawning, but he definitely does [...]

    10. This is the third book I have read about Hollywood and I am sorely disappointed in all of them. Frankly, I really don't care who slept with whom, but it sure bothers me that every one of these books have shown how these famous people have treated their children with great disregard. I guess their egos just couldn't handle being a parent, because that meant they would have had to put the child first. That wasn't possible because they were too involved in themselves.

    11. Interesting story about old Hollywood and one of its leading players behind the scenes. Greg Bautzer lived a fascinating life and his rise in the movie business is fairly remarkable. I do like my Hollywood tales with a bit more dish and this has a fair sharejust not enough to make me give it four stars.

    12. Less salacious than one might expect, the stories of Bautzer's Hollywood business contacts and deals make for some dry reading. This is however an important piece of history heretofore undocumented. The material on Lana Turner, Howard Hughes and Bob Evans was more compelling than other chapters.

    13. Liked this book very much. Very entertaining reading of the Stars of yesteryear and their involvement with the Man of the title! It was amazing, how he could juggle all of his love lives plus commit to his law career!

    14. I had never heard of this guy before I found the book on ky unbound. Glad I gave it a whirl. He was the "uncle Greg" who dated Joan Crawford in the 40's. He was Howard Hughes ' s lawyer and loved Lana Turner. An interesting read.

    15. A lawyer who worked his way into the social life during the hay days of Hollywood and dated many stars including Joan Crawford, Lana Turner and Dana Wynter. He represented many stars and his biggest client was Howard Hughes. If you find Hollywood history fascinating than read this book.
