Overview

An intimate look into the lives of the rich and famous and many top movie stars from early Hollywood. Personal stories from my relationships with stars like Bette Davis, Mae West, Cher, Jack Oakie, Diane Linkletter (daughter of TV personality Art Linkletter) and others that you can't get anywhere else. Humorous and nostalgic. A great read.

I was just a poor country boy from South Georgia who had an opportunity to see a different way of life. I spent most of my teenage years living in Beverly Hills with my aunt, whose close friends included celebrities, movie stars and dignitaries. I was fortunate enough to get to know many of these people myself and spent a lot of one on one time with them. Bette Davis and I became very close and she confided many details about her career and her years in Hollywood.

Mae West hosted my sixteenth birthday party in her Santa Monica home.

Before Cher was a star, her mother was a close friend of my Aunt's and she was one of the first people I met. She took me out and showed me Sunset Strip when I was a kid of fourteen and she was fifteen. Just a few years later, Sonny and Cher were at the top of the charts.

I dated Art Linkletter's daughter Diane for nearly a year.

My aunt was very wealthy and lived in one of the most lavish homes in Beverly Hills. She was a celebrated hostess whose parties were attended by the likes of Lauren Bacall, Al Jolson, Mickey Rooney, longtime FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, Melvin Douglas, Broderick Crawford, and Sugar King of Havana Julio Lobo to name a few.

About the Author

Robert Allen Jenkins is an American country songwriter. He has enjoyed success in the field and has had his songs recorded by a number of top country artists. He owns three music publishing companies where he publishes his music and the music of some other talented country songwriters.

Robert's life has been quite interesting and he is writing his autobiography in three segments. His first book, The Beverly Hills Supper Club, is about the time he spent during his teenaged years living in Beverly Hills with his wealthy aunt and his friendships with many celebrities and movie stars. The next book, in progress, is the funny things that happened to him growing up poor in the deep south. It promises to be very entertaining. The last will be about his years in the music business.

Robert has always enjoyed making up stories for his grandchildren, who can’t wait to hear them when they see their grandpa. Encouraged by his wife Lyn and his children, he has put some of the stories to paper and is continuing to create new stories. His wife Lyn is the illustrator and they work hand in hand to create the stories, as they have in all their other endeavors for their forty plus years of marriage.

Robert’s first children's book, What Can I Do, is a favorite among his six grandchildren. It is a picture book for younger children and beginner readers (ages 2-8). It is the story of a puppy who is trying to find out what he can do. It teaches the lesson that although we may have different talents, we are all good at something. We just have to find out what it is.

Robert has a number of children's stories written and will be publishing them as the illustrations are finished. He would appreciate your reviews, and of course, five stars are his goal. If you would like to review Robert’s work, we will have a certain number of free downloads for reviewing purposes. Contact us by email. Robert.

Robert lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife Lyn on a small farm where he raised his three children.

I love this book!!! I'm a history buff and especially interested in old Hollywood movie trivia. These are new stories about classic stars. Interesting that a teenager in the 60's became friends with these famous people. Many good photos, too. I recommend!.

As a fan of the early Hollywood stars, I found this book very compelling with some new stories and information I hadn't heard before. The author's personal friendship with Betty Davis was especially fascinating. I also like the perspective, from a teenager's point of view. I would imagine it to be like Alice in Wonderland to experience such glamour and wealth after growing up poor in a small southern town. I would definitely recommend this book.
