A vibrant, exuberant self-portrait of one of today s greatest living actors. Christopher Plummer s magnificent book recounts the wild adventure that is his life, stretching from a privileged childhood in Canada to the glorious, star-studded New York of the fifties to a sensational career in film appearing in some of our most beloved classics. Here are his late nights out with Carson McCullers, Tennessee Williams, Paddy Chayefsky, and Arthur Miller; his affairs and marriages; his collaborations with famed producers; and his memorable roles alongside fellow young and talented actors, each also destined for stardom: Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave, Peter O Toole, Natalie Wood, and countless others. Plummer weaves delicious anecdotes of a life spent on stages and film sets across the world from Peter Hall s Royal Shakespeare Theatre to The Sound of Music (affectionately dubbed S&M ) into a boisterous narrative filled with humor and irresistible charm. «
