    Chrisopher Plummer has been around the acting profession for a long, long time, beginning as a very young man in his native Canada.

    His autobiography includes much name dropping, but it's all because he began working with some a very well known, and soon-to-be well known actors of radio, stage and screen...He writes beautifully and I was eager to read every page... and saddened to see the book was coming to an end. I enjoyed this book... If you are interested in the history of the theatre, especially care to learn about Broadway live theatre, the early days of so many who went on to become the heart of the American Theatre, this is the book for you....

    I gave this as a gift

    Haven't read it yet! Gave it to my friend who's a theater nut and I'm waiting until she's done to borrow it and read it myself.

    Plumbing the Depths of Plummer

    Christopher Plummer has earned his honors over a long lifetime. It is fascinating to read his take on himself after viewing his many incarnations of the stage and screen. Some of it is delightful, some a trip through the dark night of the soul. But with a smile and a laugh. I am just amazed that with the amount of alcohol involved (fulfilling the stereotype of the great actor!) he has such recall! A joy for us all.<BR/>I'll raise a glass to him. He has reminded us that the acting profession<BR/>is not all sturm und drang, but very much comedy overlaying tragedy.
