    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 would not recommend this book.

    I read this entire book but was very disappointed in it, particularly after reading the review in the New York Times Book Review. It is not well written nor is it well edited. Christopher Plummer uses exclaimation points so often they lose their effect. He makes obvious errors that an editor should have corrected, such as referring to someone running for "mayor of Maine." While Plummer is quite honest about his failings, he comes across as being arrogant and it gets very tiresome reading about his drunken exploits.

    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.

    Great History of Actors and Acting

    I enjoyed Christopher Plummer at Stratford, Ontario in the late 50's and was eager to read of his full life in the theater. He knew and worked with a lot of people, so he asks the reader to plow through very, very, many names, but many of them are big names that are interesting to learn more about. If you are not interested in absorbing all the names, you can skim over them and still learn a lot about classical theater and actors as well as some interesting movie history. His life story was very interesting and compelled me to read all 647 pages.

    Christopher Plummer was so boring

    This was not an autobiography that I would recommend to anyone. It was so boring. He wrote a long book, over 600 pages and it had about maybe 40 pages about himself. The rest were about his co stars and their lives. He wrote about the directors and producers and all the drinking that went on. He wrote little about himself. Isn't that what an autobiography is suppose to be about? <BR/>And what upset me the most was that he was a terrible father to his daughter. Now they are close, so that makes it seem alright. It's hard to make up those lost years.
