9780062094476: Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them

Rita Hayworth dancing by candlelight; Elizabeth Taylor tenderly wrapping him in her Pashmina scarf; streaking for Sir Laurence Olivier in a drafty English castle; terrifying a dozing Jackie Onassis; carrying an unconscious Montgomery Clift to safety on a dark New York street...

Captured forever in a unique memoir, Frank Langella’s myriad encounters with some of the past century’s most famous human beings are profoundly affecting, funny, wicked, sometimes shocking, and utterly irresistible. With sharp wit and a perceptive eye, Mr. Langella takes us with him into the private worlds and privileged lives of movie stars, presidents, royalty, literary lions, the social elite, and the greats of the Broadway stage. We learn something, too, of Mr. Langella’s personal journey from the age of fifteen to the present day. Dropped Names is, like its subjects, riveting and unforgettable.

From the Back Cover:

Rita Hayworth dancing by candlelight in a small Mexican village; Elizabeth Taylor devouring homemade pasta and tenderly wrapping him in her pashmina scarf; streaking for Sir Laurence Olivier in a drafty English castle; terrifying a dozing Jackie Onassis; carrying an unconscious Montgomery Clift to safety on a dark New York City street.

Captured forever in a unique memoir, Frank Langella's myriad encounters with some of the past century's most famous human beings are profoundly affecting, funny, wicked, sometimes shocking, and utterly irresistible. With sharp wit and a perceptive eye, Mr. Langella takes us with him into the private worlds and privileged lives of movie stars, presidents, royalty, literary lions, the social elite, and the greats of the Broadway stage.

What, for instance, was Jack Kennedy doing on that coffee table? Why did the Queen Mother need Mr. Langella's help? When was Paul Mellon going to pay him money owed? How did Brooke Astor lose her virginity? Why was Robert Mitchum singing Gilbert & Sullivan patter songs at top volume, and what did Marilyn Monroe say to him that helped change the course of his life?

Through these shared experiences, we learn something, too, of Mr. Langella's personal journey from the age of fifteen to the present day.

Dropped Names is, like its subjects, riveting and unforgettable.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. For more than four decades, Frank Langella has enjoyed a singular life and career. This extremely versatile actor is also a brilliant writer with a perceptive eye and a gift for the telling detail. Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them is a collection of illuminating portraits of the people he has met and known as well as deeply revealing memories told with a rare honesty. With sharp wit and a skillful narrative style, Langella affectingly limns portraits of lost friends, enemies, idols and liaisons that are funny, moving, wicked, sometimes shocking and totally addictive. Woven throughout are the threads of his own experiences, from his early years in Bayonne, New Jersey, to his most recent successes. An entertaining and totally compelling read, Dropped Names is a mesmerizing performance from a dazzling and original talent. We are taken on an exceptional journey with scores of renowned souls, now lost to us, but Langella s ability to contrast their public personas with their private selves brings them back to vivid life.
