    • This is a story that has many different takes by many different people. The opinions can differ greatly. Was William Desmond Taylor gay, or a predator on young women, or just a fatherly man? Was Mabel Normand a drug addict, an alcoholic, or just tubercular? Was Mary Miles Minter the victim of unrequited love, a strange stalker of older men, or just a unfortunate young woman? The point is that with these debates and many, many others, it's impossible for a writer about the Taylor murder to please [...]


    • There were many scandals in the 1920s, and one of the foremost is the unsolved murder of William Desmond Taylor. Even to film buffs, Taylor is not the most well known director; his body of work has been shrunk by the ravages of time and nitrate decomposition. However, his name lives on as the victim of a murder shrouded with mystery and lies.Robert Giroux grew up watching the films of Taylor's era and took an interest in the murder case just in time. He was able to interview various celebrities [...]


    • I finished this book in 2 days - I was completely absorbedinto Giroux's meticulous, almost obsessively researched bookabout the William Desmond Taylor murder. One of the parts thatwill stick in my memory are the quotes and secret letters ofMary Miles Minter which present her as a lovesick girl witha hopeless crush on Taylor. Whether she and Taylor had everbeen lovers, it was very clear by the end that he was going out of his way to avoid her but Minter's letters only reveala "love is blind" atti [...]


    • The death of a prominent director, William Desmond Taylor, was big news in 1922. He was murdered by an unknown assilant(s). At this time in Hollywood, drug use was very common among actors, directors and those who helped make silent pictures. Taylor didn't use drugs and was very active in fighting drug use. Hollywood was getting a bad name because of the drug induced deaths of leading actors. Many belived evidence in his death was covered up by big Hollywood money people. Sus[ects oncluded his s [...]


    • Decent account of the murder of silent film Director William Desmond Taylor. A bigger picture often bubbles to the surface of the page; the early days of Hollywood. Fascinating subject, and if you're into that, this book will provide some interesting insight. While most would find this to be book filler to pad out the mystery, it seemed to help with the tapestry of the era as backdrop and the murder itself. Not sure if this is the be all, end all solution to the puzzle, that may never be solved, [...]


    • This is THE book to read about the fascinating unsolved murder of William Desmond Taylor. It's very well research. It's easy to see how meticulous Giroux was in his writing. While it does present some solutions as more likely than others, what I liked best about it is that it presented the facts and wasn't colored by a bias toward any one solution (unlike "A Cast of Killers"). Despite being so well researched and unbiased, it still ends up as engrossing as any novel.


    • This tied in with one of our book club selections, "Age of Dreaming." It is a factual account of a murder in Hollywood in the 20s upon which the other book was based.


    • Another and better take on the William Desmond Taylor murder that ruined Mabel Normand's career. Preferably to the Cast of Killers book.
