Sadly this was boring...I wanted it to be so much more. Interesting on the body double, but it sadly wasn't well written, and it went off in tangents.

The author tries to combine an homicide investigation with the story of the body double to Janet Leigh in Psycho. This combination doesn't quite work. The story of Marli Renfro is interesting enough along with her anecdotes with many famous people. Worth reading for anyone who likes early 60's movies, especially the exploitation ones.
