Product description

Review

"Robert Vaughn is a gifted storyteller. He writes breathtakingly well, capturing English prose-poetry with all the joy of an eminent Casanova. Here in this "Fortunate Life" you will find elegant bawdiness, ribald tales, plus a rowdy, outrageous recounting of the doings of the famous and the infamous in the worlds of theater, politics, and business. You will read about hair-raising escapes from the Soviet invasion and from an extortionate situation in South America. Vaughn is modest on his success and hilarious on the subject of his failures. There is an astonishing revelation on the subject of Robert Kennedy's assassination. "A Fortunate Life "is no mere 'then I...' book stuffed with fluff. It has life, love, laughter, tragedy, but above it all hilarity and is indeed inspiring." ---Malachy McCourt, author of "A Monk Swimming"

About the Author

Robert Vaughn has appeared in more than a hundred motion pictures, including "The ""Magnificent Seven, Bullitt "(for which he won a British Oscar nomination)," "and "The Young Philadelphians," which earned him an Academy Award nomination. His work in television has earned him an Emmy among other honors, and his role as Napoleon Solo on the hit television series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E. "has earned him lasting fame. The series won the Hollywood Foreign Press Golden Globe as the best television show in the world in 1965. Vaughn received the Photoplay Gold Medal award as the most popular actor in America, presented to him by the previous year's winner, John Wayne. Vaughn is also a serious student of politics and world affairs. He played a leading role in the antiwar movement of the 1960s. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California in 1970, and his book on the Hollywood blacklist, "Only Victims," was published in 1972. Vaughn has most recently starred in the BBC/AMC Original Series "Hustle." He lives in Connecticut with his wife, Linda, and is the father of a son, Cassidy, and a daughter, Caitlin.
