Review:

Co-author Tom Arthur...met Douglas for the first time when he was a teenager and Douglas was appearing in Time Out for Ginger in Chicago in 1953. The two began working on the book together in 1971. The result is a gem, a story told with spirit and humor and a generous smattering of bawdy anecdotes that is easy to recommend to both actors and non-actors alike.

...reading 'See You at the Movies' is fun.

...fascinating, chummy and unaffected, as intimate as a personal letter. There is much in this cozy, readable book that is just plain enjoyable.

...writeen in Douglas's always thoughtful, articulate style....

...informative in such a way that it'll more than satisfy movie historians and gossipy enough to make other readers happy, too....See You at the Movies is thoroughly enjoyable....a good job overall. Read it.
