Why I failed charm school : my mother, actress Ann Sothern, and our lives together ; a memoir

March 2, 2020
Sterling, Tisha.
Morgan Hill, California : Bookstand Publishing, [2016]
241 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 23 cm
In the words of television and movie actress Tisha Sterling, the daughter of renowned Hollywood actress Ann Sothern: "My cards were dealt generously. From my parents and the good Lord, I inherited beauty and was blessed with a sparkling future. On the surface, I had a life most people could only dream of having." However ... "Every morning for four years, I had been swallowing 100 milligrams of methadone, mixed with Kool-Aid from a little white paper cup. Like clockwork, I dressed in yesterday's dirty clothes picked up from my tiny apartment I shared with my 16-year-old daughter and headed for the West Los Angeles Methadone Clinic. That morning what I felt inside: anger, fear and shame. I thought about my mother, a one-time important film actress whose career had flourished from the 1920's to the present time and stupidly compared it to my own career that was by now in the toilet, almost nonexistent. Yet I stubbornly hung on to a glimmer of hope (maybe my only salvation) that some successful auditions for me on television and film would be forthcoming and that soon I would be back to work on a Hollywood set doing what I did best acting." And thus Tisha begins her heartfelt memoir chronicling what on the surface appeared to be a dream life as Ann Sothern's daughter, but which at times was precisely the opposite. Along the way, Tisha paints an intimate portrait of Hollywood and its personalities during Hollywood's bygone Golden Age in the 1930s through the 1960s, a portrait that only one who lived and worked inside the Hollywood of that glamorous era could present."-- from Amazon.

The big goodbye : Chinatown and the last years of Hollywood

February 25, 2020
Wasson, Sam, author.
New York : Flatiron Books, 2020.
397 pages ; 25 cm
"From the New York Times bestselling author of Fifth Avenue, Five A.M. and Fosse comes the revelatory account of the making of a modern American masterpiece. Chinatown is the Holy Grail of 1970s cinema. Its twist ending is the most notorious in American film and its closing line of dialogue the most haunting. Here for the first time is the incredible true story of its making. In Sam Wasson's telling, it becomes the defining story of the most colorful characters in the most colorful period of Hollywood history. Here is Jack Nicholson at the height of his powers, as compelling a movie star as there has ever been, embarking on his great, doomed love affair with Anjelica Huston. Here is director Roman Polanski, both predator and prey, haunted by the savage death of his wife, returning to Los Angeles, the scene of the crime, where the seeds of his own self-destruction are quickly planted. Here is the fevered dealmaking of "The Kid" Robert Evans, the most consummate of producers. Here too is Robert Towne's fabled script, widely considered the greatest original screenplay ever written. Wasson for the first time peels off layers of myth to provide the true account of its creation. Looming over the story of this classic movie is the imminent eclipse of the '70s filmmaker-friendly studios as they gave way to the corporate Hollywood we know today. In telling that larger story, The Big Goodbye will take its place alongside classics like Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and The Devil's Candy as one of the great movie-world books ever written. Praise for Sam Wasson: "Wasson is a canny chronicler of old Hollywood and its outsize personalities...More than that, he understands that style matters, and, like his subjects, he has a flair for it." - The New Yorker "Sam Wasson is a fabulous social historian because he finds meaning in situations and stories that would otherwise be forgotten if he didn't sleuth them out, lovingly." - Hilton Als"-- Provided by publisher.

I love the bones of you : my father and the making of me

January 27, 2020
Eccleston, Christopher, author.
London : Simon & Schuster UK Ltd, 2019.
326 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (some color) ; 24 cm
Be it as Nicky Hutchinson in Our Friends In The North, Maurice in The A Word, or his reinvention of Doctor Who, one man, in life and death, has accompanied Christopher Eccleston every step of the way - his father Ronnie. In I Love The Bones Of You, Eccleston unveils a vivid portrait of a relationship that has shaped his entire career trajectory, mirroring and defining his own highs and lows, from stage and screen triumph to breakdown, anorexia, self-doubt, and a deep belief in the basic principles of access and equality denied to generations. The actor reveals how his background in Salford, and vision of a person, like millions, denied their true potential, shaped his desire to make drama forever entwined with the marginalised, the oppressed, and the outsider. Movingly, and in scenes sadly familiar to increasing numbers, Eccleston also describes how the tightening grip of dementia on his father slowly blinded him to his son's existence, forcing a new and final chapter in their connection, and how 'Ronnie Ecc' still walks alongside him today. Told with trademark honesty and openness, I Love The Bones Of You is a celebration of those on whom the spotlight so rarely shines, as told by a man who found his voice in its glare. A love letter to one man, and a paean to many.

"The definitive biography of Sir Ian McKellen from an acclaimed biographer In 2001, Ian McKellen put on the robe and pointed hat of a wizard named Gandalf and won a place in the hearts of Tolkien fans worldwide. Though his role in the film adaptation of Lord of the Rings introduced him to a new audience, McKellen had a thriving career a lifetime before his visit to Middle Earth. He made his West End acting debut in 1964 in James Saunders's A Scent of Flowers, but it was in 1980 that he took Broadway by storm when he played Antonio Salieri in Peter Shaffer's Tony-Award-winning play Amadeus. He has starred in over four hundred plays and films and he is that rare character: a celebrity whose distinguished political and social service has transcended his international fame to reach beyond the stage and screen. The breadth of his career-professional, personal and political-has been truly staggering: Macbeth (opposite Judi Dench), Iago, King Lear, Chekhov's Sorin in The Seagull and Becket's tramp Estragon (opposite Patrick Stewart) in Waiting for Godot. Add to all this his tireless political activism in the cause of gay equality and you have a veritable phenomenon. Garry O'Connor's Ian McKellen: A Biography probes the heart of the actor, recreating his greatest stage roles and exploring his personal life. Ian McKellen will show readers what makes a great actor tick. His life story has been a constantly developing drama and this biography is the next chapter"-- Provided by publisher.

"By the early 1950s Walt Disney's great achievements in animation were behind him, and he was increasingly bored by the two-dimensional film medium. He wanted to work in three, to build an entirely new sort of amusement park, one that relied more on cinematic techniques than on thrill rides, one from which all tawdriness had been purged. He achieved it, but just barely: he ran out of money, had to borrow against his life insurance, fell out with his studio, frightened his family, and endured much ridicule. What he built was far more influential than is generally understood-for one thing, Disneyland's Main Street sparked an architectural preservation movement that touched every American downtown-and remains controversial: many see it as a retreat from life itself. What is beyond argument is that Disneyland was something new, both in public entertainment, and in the way its "lands" managed to chime with how millions of Americans wanted to view their country-six hundred million Americans so far, and they just keep on coming. It reflects the park's uniqueness, but just as strongly that of the man who built it with a watchmaker's precision, an artist's conviction, and the desperate, high-hearted recklessness of a riverboat gambler"-- Provided by publisher.
