9780099538356: Pieces of My Heart. Robert Wagner with Scott Eyman

In this moving memoir, Robert J. Wagner opens his heart to share the romances, the drama and the humor of an incredible life. Under the mentorship of stars like Spencer Tracy, he became a salaried actor in Hollywood's studio system among other hot actors of the moment such as his friends Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis. Wagner began to appear in a number of films alongside the most beautiful starlets. As his career blossomed he met the woman who would change his life forever, Natalie Wood. They fell instantly and deeply in love and stayed together until the stress of their careers drove them to divorce. Trying to forget the pain, he made more movies and spent his time in Europe with the likes of Steve McQueen, Sophia Loren, Peter Sellers, Laurence Olivier, David Niven, Liz Taylor and Joan Collins. He would meet and marry the beautiful former model and actress Marion Marshall. Together they had a daughter, and made their way back to America, where he found himself at the beginning of a new era in Hollywood - the blossoming of television. Despite his new found success, his marriage to Marion fell apart. He looked no further than Natalie Wood, for whom he still pined. To the world's surprise, they fell in love all over again. Their life together was cut tragically short, though, when Wood died after falling from their yacht. For the first time, Wagner writes about that tremendously painful time. After a serious bout with depression, he finally resurfaced and eventually married Jill St. John, who helped keep his family and his fractured heart together.

From the Back Cover:

Robert J. Wagner opens his heart to share the romances, the drama, and the humor of an incredible life.

When he was a young boy growing up in Bel Air next door to a golf course, Robert Wagner saw Fred Astaire, Clark Gable, Randolph Scott, and Cary Grant playing golf together one morning—and it fueled his dream of becoming a movie star.

In Pieces of My Heart, Wagner offers a candid and deeply personal look at his life and career—his rise to stardom in the studiodominated Hollywood era of the 1950s; his relationship with mentors like Spencer Tracy and David Niven, and with friends like Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis; his decline and his resurrection. And he speaks from the heart of the women he loved: Barbara Stanwyck, a glamorous star twice his age; Marion Marshall, Jill St. John . . . and Natalie Wood. For the very first time he chronicles in great depth their extraordinary romance and bares his pain as he openly recounts its tragic end.

With color photographs and fascinating never-before-told tales and anecdotes, Pieces of My Heart is the heartfelt, remarkably revealing, and quintessentially American story of one of the great sons of Hollywood.

From the Back Cover:

A moving, candid, and deeply personal look at the triumphs and tragedies, lovesand heartbreaks of one of Hollywood's most popular and enduring stars.

Handsome, suave, and sophisticated, Robert J. Wagner has starred in more than one hundred films and television series over the past fifty years. In this deeply personal story, he recalls his rise to stardom. He talks candidly about his relationships with some of the greatest stars of the 20th century, including Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Stanwyck, and, for the first time, he shares the details of his two marriages to Natalie Wood. Wagner also offers a fascinating look at Hollywood during the last half of the 20th century.
