Multiple issues[edit]

Quote attribution[edit]

I have moved here, this sentence, which I find is not sufficiently sourced. Please specify the exact source, publisher, year, full name of author, title and page where this quote exists:

According to James Kirkwood, Jr., co-author of A Chorus Line, "Darwin Porter writes with an incredible understanding of the milieu - hot enough to singe the wings off any butterfly!"<ref>Review for Porter's ''Butterfly in Heat''.</ref>

Quoted in Darwin Porter, Butterflies in Heat (1997 edition), p.1. Onefortyone (talk) 22:34, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Veracity[edit]

Some of Porter's claims appear to have been questioned. e.g. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/books/article-1367265/Frankly-dears-I-dont-believe-word-DAMN-YOU-SCARLETT-OHARA-THE-PRIVATE-LIVES-OF-VIVIEN-LEIGH-AND-LAURENCE-OLIVIER-BY-DARWIN-PORTER--ROY-MOSELEY.html and http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2943309/Rampant-Ronald-Reagan-Former-president-ladies-man-Hollywood-days-new-book-lays-save-affairs-stars-Doris-Day-Lana-Turner-Monroe.html. A 'Criticism' section has therefore been added to the article. Engleham (talk) 08:24, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
