Description: Stars in My Eyes is a revealing and entertaining collection of celebrity portraits, rendered both in ink drawings and in finely prose. Internationally known portraitist Don Bachardy made each drawing from life in the course of a few hours, sketching the actors, writers, artists, composers, directors, and Hollywood elite he knew intimately and lived among with his partner, Christopher Isherwood. Then, he made notes in his diaries on the experience of making each portrait. The result is a unique document: we see Bachardy as he creates portraits on paper, and we see artists of all kinds engaged in creating and portraying their own celebrity.

Made in the 1970s and 1980s, Bachardy's drawings and prose sketches capture many celebrities near the end of their careers (Ruby Keeler, Vincente Minnelli, Laurence Olivier) and others at the height of their stardom (Jack Nicholson, Mia Farrow, Linda Ronstadt). Bette Davis offers to cook him lunch and haplessly overboils the beets, sits for three drawings, and renders her judgment: "Yup, that's the old bag". Barbara Stanwyck threatens that she might scandalize him with her cussing. Aaron Copland grouses, "Well, it makes me look benign". Ellsworth Kelly admits to being a fan of The Road Warrior. Jerry Brown commissions an official portrait.
