    As a non-Catholic person, the stories of conversion had less impact on me than had I been of a similar persuasion. I think there would have been additional resonance had that been the case.It did not impede my enjoyment of the stories. We all have heard those tragic stories of those who burned brightly and then imploded under the glare of stardom. Each of these stories to a greater or lesser degree could so easily been another one.What each story told was how that celebrity, often in the twiligh [...]

    This book may be well-meaning but it's deceptive. There is almost nothing in it on conversions. Instead the author does a -like overview of each celebrity and then at the end of each chapter uses a paragraph or two to tell how they became Catholic. In 4 or 5 cases it was done literally on their death beds. Many of the female stars had abortions earlier in life. And all led wild, immoral lives.So what is the point of the book? That one can live a sinful life, go through multiple marriages (even a [...]

Often after a lot of pain in their personal lives (i [...]

    Fans of Old Hollywood will enjoy this compendium of articles about how finding the faith changed the lives of some of the biggest stars, including Gary Cooper, Bob Hope, Lana Turner, Jane Wyman, Patricia Neal, and others. Many of the actors' stories share the same themes -- difficult early lives gave way to a tumultuous (and sometimes morally ambiguous) adulthood, leaving people ungrounded and unable to cope in the face of challenges, and sometimes, tragedies. In many of the stories, charismatic [...]

    I think a lot of unnecessary biographical / career information was given. The actualConversion aspect was usually at the very end of the chapter - many on their deathbed. Reading the chapter on Bob Hope was mostly on how he got his start followed by his philandering - the conversion was not at allMoving or even convincing occurring 10Yrs prior to His death but with nothing toReally support how he changed. I'd rather read stories of the saints
