I spent a considerable amount of time in my youth attending the cinema and cannot remember not seeing Jack Lemmon being in at least one film I saw each week. (I did say I spent a considerable amount of time at the cinema - we didn't have television until I was about twelve (considered a distraction). Jack came from a very wealthy background and didn't necessary convey that in some of his more famous rules. He loved acting and it showed. This ebook taught me several aspects to Jack' s performances that I overlooked or forgot in growing up. He generally conveyed a degree of agitation in some of his roles and I do remember thinking, if he said less he could get the same impact across. He was very good at what he did in such films as the Apartment in which he was an employee allowed to use a flat by his employer but, thee was a catch, the boss wanted to use it too, just not whilst Jack's character was in it.

The various Charles River Editors publications are generally well-written short coverages of various people and events. Formatting and spelling are generally ok, with only occasional glitches where a word would be validly found by a spell-checker but which is grammatically incorrect in context.
I had not known much about Jack Lemmon's life and this provided a useful introduction. C.R.E.'s citation of sources and providing a bibliography for further reading is, as always, a good practice.
I always liked this actor and his ability to do comedy as well as dramatic roles such as the "Days of wine &Roses". I learned things about his life that I had not previously know about him. I recommend it to anyone, plus, it was a very interesting read.
