5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary life, 4 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burt Lancaster: An American Life (Paperback)
This is a very well written and researched book which in no way disappoints.
The lives of these stars of a bygone age merely confirms that they achieved their status by hard work and hard knocks.
Mr Lancaster may have had many flaws, but that is what made him the very watchable star that he was.
This is a very substantial book from all perspectives and one which provides an insight into a movie industry which changed out of all recognition due in part to people such as this - though whether that was for the best is a subject for debate.
If the current crop of actors and 'Celeb's' were to read this book they would realise that for the most part they should not bother writing their 'stories'.
