    Inhaltsangabe

    He was the Golden Boy of the Golden Age. Dashing and debonair, Tony Curtis arrived on the scene in a blaze of bright lights and celluloid. His good looks, smooth charm, and natural talent earned him fame, women, and adulation - Elvis copied his look and the Beatles put him on their Sgt. Pepper album cover. But the Hollywood life of his dreams brought both invincible highs and debilitating lows. Now, in his captivating, no-holds-barred autobiography, Tony Curtis shares the agony and ecstasy of a private life in the public eye.

    No simple tell-all, American Prince chronicles Hollywood during its heyday. Curtis revisits his immense body of work and regales listeners with stories of his associations with Frank Sinatra, Laurence Olivier, director Billy Wilder, as paramours Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe, among others. 

    Written with humor and grace, American Prince is a testament to the power of living the life of one’s dreams.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "When you're with Tony Curtis, you're with somebody very alive. He was - and is - one of the most 'up' people I have ever known." (Sidney Poitier)
    "Tony Curtis could have just been the beautiful young leading man, handsome, charming as hell . . . [but] he wanted to be a good actor, and he's the only guy I know who learned his craft successfully." (Jack Lemmon)
    "For Some Like It Hot, I wanted a straight leading man and a comedian. I was sure Tony was right for it. Tony is so open and animated....It was a huge, wonderful plus for the picture." (Billy Wilder)

    Womanizer and charming fellow from the Bronx

    Ich kenne nur die gekürzte Fassung und finde die reicht bei weitem aus, um den Aufstieg vom Shoeshine -boy zum Superstar nachzuvollziehen.
    Ganz nett geschrieben und ehrlich ohne viel Schmus. Der Mann, der eigentlich Schwarz hieß und aus kleinsten Verhältnissen stammt- die Eltern sind ungarische Juden, Vater ist Schneider - ist der Liebling der Frauen, viermal verheiratet und mit 6 Kindern gesegnet. (Ein Sohn stirbt an seiner Rauschgiftsucht)
    Lesenswert!°
