"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

I caught “The Kid Stays in the Picture” on cable the other day…I’d forgotten just how damn enjoyable it is.

And if you dig it, check out the audio cd of the book.

Dude, Evans has been married seven times! But man, that Ali McGraw was a looker.

Alex, Evans has nothing on former big leaguer Paul Schaal. He's been married nine times!!!

That might be more than Larry King!

I have seen it several times and it is a story Americans love. Guy is succesful and then is knocked down, and then gets back up.

I love Dustin Hoffman's impression of Evans at the end of the movie. Hoffman also modeled his character of the producer in "Wag the Dog" on Evans.
