I Blame Dennis Hopper (And Other Stories From a Life Lived In and Out of the Movies)

By Illeana Douglas

4 out of 5 stars

Illeana Douglas loves movies. It’s so apparent and so infectious. You will love all the movies she loves too! From the movie that made her blame Dennis Hopper (fun story) to the movies she has been in, she tells her stories with a lot of love and a lot of laughs. Her love of cinema is what makes this book work so well. She’s a big fan herself when it comes to meeting Marlon Brando or Roddy McDowall.  Her stories take us all around her career. It also takes us into her life as the granddaughter of the late great Melvyn Douglas to her relationship with Martin Scorcese. There is no meanness in this book so if you are looking for dirt, look elsewhere. It was a joy to read and I look forward to reading whatever she comes up with next.
