    As with all of Bret's books we have our one star reviews, and we have our "suspect" five star reviews. Please see the example below:

    1.0 out of 5 stars utter tosh and full of spelling mistakes and factual errors., 8 Dec 2011
    By jeremiah harbottle (Littlebourne, Kent.) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Clark Gable: Tormented Star (Hardcover)
    what rubbish this is! the author can't get his facts straight. here's an example: when the clark gable film "red dust" is mentioned, the writer reckons that an actor by the name of gary raymond made an appearance. this is completely incorrect as that particular actor was british and wasn't born until about the early to middle 1930s. the actor who did appear in "red dust" was one called gene raymond, a completely different person altogether. i do not rate any books by this author as he doesn't offer any shred of proof as to how he draws the conclusions that he does with regards to his subject. when i emailed him once and asked him outright, his answer was not exactly forthcoming!

    See what I mean about suspect five star reviews!!! Now Mary, along with your good self it would also seem that Badboy Bret also seems to know very little about our bygone film stars, judging by the poor reviews ALL his books have recieved..... Basketball
