Eyman's comments like "a woman who managed to become a major star without ever earning the bona fides of a major actress." Hello, she was nominated 3 times for Best Actress. Here's some more:
"her line readings were often flat and gauche."
"served as another notch on Warren Beatty's bedpost, which seems to have induced a mysterious suicide attempt."
"you couldn't say she was a natural screen comedienne. It's almost as if acting was some sort of violation of her essential nature, even as it fed her need for drama, for notice."
"Mr. Wagner isn't entirely clear... what a woman who had always been terrified of the water was doing trying to get into a dinghy" RJ said he knew she didn't take the dinghy.
"but [her] career is punctuated by dreary failure."
"She helps render West Side Story unwatchable"
+ "And yes, she's very moving in Splendor in the Grass , but Elia Kazan could have drawn good work out of Lash La Rue."
I'd say he's got something against her.

that day. Fortunately, I've never come across that kind of extremism in any of his biographies, and
I've read all but one of them so far. He generally comes off as one of the most balanced and fair
biographers of the current crop and I think that may be why Wagner chose him.

I also know that Eyman has no respect for Natalie in a professional sense. I lost all respect for him as a writer when I saw his review of Gavin Lambert's biography of Natalie. He did not actually review the book, he reviewed Natalie and, trust me, it was not positive. It was demeaning, degrading and insulting. It made me wonder why Wagner chose him of all people as a collaborator.

trust the credibility of his collaborator, Scott Eyman.

it was for Four Star Theater or some other production) and in the seventies, a rather dreary
Aaron Spelling made-for-TV picture called "The Affair". I think Natalie definitely had what
it took to go on to bigger and better things, and I can even imagine her getting one or two
Oscar-calibre performances in before the day was done. It's a terrible loss we didn't get to see
I'm still reading on in the new Wagner biography.
