I thoroughly enjoy learning about actor and actresses lives, I find the behind the scenes of movie or tv sets enjoyable. This book did not disappoint, I really enjoyed reading Mr. Daniels life, and he has such a wonderful way of telling his story and I didn’t want the book to end. I liked reading about the production of A Christmas Carol with Robert Shaw and the One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. I really felt like I was a part of his world when he told a story. Overall I loved reading this and would recommend this to anyone that loves reading about behind the scenes.
5 out of 5 stars
William Daniels is an enigma—a rare chameleon who has enjoyed massive success both in Hollywood and on Broadway and been embraced by fans of successive generations. Few of his peers inspire the fervor with which buffs celebrate his most iconic roles, among them George Feeny in Boy Meets World, KITT in Knight Rider, Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, and John Adams in the play and film 1776.
Daniels guides readers through some of Hollywood’s most cherished productions, offering recollections of entertainment legends including Lauren Bacall, Warren Beatty, Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Mike Nichols, Jason Robards, Barbra Streisand, and many more.
Looking back on his seventy-five-plus-year career, Daniels realizes that although he never had the courage to say “no” to being an actor, he backed into stardom. With his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, by his side, he came to realize that he wound up exactly where he was supposed to be: on the screen and stage.
