Debbie posted a comment about books and I thought I'd share - see if we can stir up some discussion:
I'm reading my way through bio's on stars that either worked with RM or were friends, since RM died before he could do his autobiography. Anyone have any good suggestions? The book on Elizabeth Mongomery had some great info. So did James Cagney's. (I've read two on him since he and Bob were close buddies).
What would you recommend? I have some thoughts I'll add later.
Update: Here's some recommended reading. I can't think of any other stars' books talking about Bob, so here's some stuff in general.
Stars in Blue: Movie Actors in America's Sea Services
James E. Wise
The "Stars in..." series is a great read. This particular book includes a chapter on Bob - I'd argue it is the most accurate write-up on him out there.
Architectural Digest, April 1992
Hollywood at Home issue - Bob's Beverly Hills home is featured w/vintage pics. You can find back issues for sale online.
A little bit of everything on everyone.
James Parish & Don Stanke
Not quite sure everything is accurate, but there's a fat chapter on Bob (and other favs).
