Actor Robert Wagner: Life And Romance

Robert Wagner has made movies with Spencer Tracy and played Number Two in the Austin Powers films. In the memoir Pieces of My Heart, Wagner details two winding paths: his career and his love life.

In the book, Wagner describes how he went from being a start-struck kid to a Hollywood actor — with a boost from a movie icon 23 years his senior — Barbara Stanwyck.
