Stars Align at Biskind Book Signing

Friends and cinephiles gathered on Saturday evening at The Chatham Bookstore to hear Peter Biskind read from his new book, Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America, an authorized (the subject’s attorney’s posturing notwithstanding) biography.  Biskind’s first selection illustrates why Beatty is worthy of the serious consideration as a filmmaker.  The second, and all of the hilarious off-the-cuff anecdotes that followed, show just how infuriatingly manipulative the actor/producer/director is, toward no one more than his biographer.  Asked his favorite moment in the five-year process of writing the book, Biskind replied, “When it was done.”
