He was handed his high school diploma by Gypsy Rose Lee.

Review by

Setup like an encyclopedia, a key word or phrase is used as an entry in this collection of facts about Walken. Names, movies & places lead into various trivia about him. It was interesting, but certainly not something I read for any length of time. While waiting for a commercial break or dinner to get ready, it was fun for short intervals, though. Movies are rated using a 5 star system & I found that I pretty much agreed with them. It turned me on to a couple of movies of his that I hadn't seen or watched in years.
