A detailed bio of Paul Newman and his movies. I would have liked to have known more about his life before he got into the movies more. Great book if you are a fan of his movies and of him.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Simply can't trust what is written here 2010/10/4
投稿者 imogen - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Quirk lays bare Newman.'s faults..& he positively dislikes Joanne Woodward....which is OK in itself. He was writing at a time when, I think, he had to combat fan worship & he's also Old Hollywood defending itself against the New Hollywood/anti Hollywood that Newman represented. He also thinks that Newman had at least one homosexual affair/encounter &, being homosexual himself, he gives the impression that he is annoyed that Newman didn't "come out of the closet". Whether he's right, of course, I have no way of knowing....but he doesn't accuse him of being promiscuous, he makes it clear that he thinks that most of the rumours of affairs...whether heterosexual or homosexual...were self seeking...&, in general, he can't comment on whether any of them were true (apart from the one homosexual affair mentioned above, which, he says came from a reliable source) He doesn't wallow in smut & the book is well written.

So why am I only giving it one star ? Because I....with my very limited knowledge....have found at least 2 important, basic errors, which means that I don't know how many more there might be. The first one is when he says that PN's first wife, Jackie Witte, had a bit part in Harper....in fact, that was a Jackie de Witt....a different person altogether. That wouldn't be so bad, but he actually quotes " a friend of Jackie Witte's" saying how painful it was for her to do that work & how it made her hatred of Joanne Woodward well up...presumably these quotes were complete inventions (????) (Hasten to add, I'm not denying the pain Newman & Woodward caused to his first wife...as Newman admitted...I'm talking about the reliability of this book) The second mistake is that he says that, when PN returned from his honeymoon with Woodward, he made The Left Handed Gun...in fact he made another film (Long Hot Summer) AFTER that BEFORE he married Woodward. Lita Milan (his co star in The Left Handed Gun) has always maintained that they had an affair. Quirk doesn't mention that & I've no idea if it's true, but anyone putting these things together would assume he came back from his honeymoon, leaving Woodward still recovering from a miscarriage, & immediately embarked on an affair.

Whatever Quirk thinks of Newman the man, I didn't expect such a prominent film critic to get basic facts wrong...he's had time enough to correct them for the new edition. And it looks as though he's invented at least one set of quotes. Everything else might be totally accurate......or completely untrue.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Worse than imaginable... 2010/9/8
投稿者 daki410 - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Honestly one of the worst biographies I've ever read - and I've read a lot. Quirk is passive aggressive to the point of utter frustration. It's almost as if he holds a personal grudge and chooses to exercise his wrath through innuendo and "can't be proven, but let's just say it because no one will know the difference." I can't tell if Quirk desperately wants Paul to be a closeted homosexual, or just wants to make us all convinced that he was. There's nothing in the book that specifically shows any hint at all of homosexuality, yet Quirk continues to express the potential of it. At the end of the day - this is a man who pursued women in public and private. Who rebuffed male advances in public and private - and who, by all accounts was completely comfortable having very dear gay friends--so the notion that he was a homophobe in public to shield his homosexuality in private is absurd. Yet Quirk spends massive amounts of time trying to get us to believe this was the case.

Quirk can't decide if Newman is a normal guy among men or a complete ass. My problem with Quirk is that his writing is so judgmental - from a journalistic perspective, just give me the facts, don't slant it with your own input and questions. I think on many levels, it's clear Newman the man was not easy, was not a push-over, and was not without strong opinions. I think it's clear he used his celebrity where he could for what he cared about - and who doesn't, by the way? Name one celebrity of his caliber who hasn't and doesn't today - Pitt, Clooney, Jolie, Affleck, DiCaprio...stop me anytime. On the notion of his parenting, we get it. He wasn't a great father in many respects, but again, most of us grew up in the world where we realized our fathers' flaws long ago. Rarely is there a perfect father out there...and I don't believe Newman was as nonchalant and obtuse to Scott's death as Quirk claims. Given what he committed to Scott's foundation in the decades following his death - no way, no how. And like most fathers who were focused on their careers while their children were small - the eventually become amazing grandfathers and parents to their adult children...which most reports point to having occurred with Newman.

There are too many gross guestimates, questionables, and ambiguities in the storytelling of this book for it to be credible. Quirk even questions the friendship of Newman and Redford at one point, almost mocking the statement Redford released upon Newman's death, claiming they really weren't that close. Yet earlier in the book he claims Redford moved closer to Newman after his divorce because of the friendship. Make up your mind, Quirk. If you've read anything at all on Newman and Redford - and not books mind you, but rather interviews with them each where they were questioned about the other - they spoke with great love and admiration of each other and their friendship - even sharing inside pranks and jokes they played on each other from afar over the years. If you believe what Quirk would have you - Newman and Woodward really had no friends, no loyalties, and no love of any real kind in their lives. Good God. Really?

Don't waste your money on this book. I don't care who Quick interviewed (and many he refuses to name, which in all cases, I then scream "fabricated" and "subjective"), the book doesn't read believable, it counters itself at different periods, and it reeks of personal judgement and opinion. For a biography? No thanks.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Don't buy it. Don't read it. 2010/1/4
投稿者 Katherine M. Wallis - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
I received this book as a gift, after wanting to read about Paul Newman for a long time. I greatly admire Paul Newman, not only for his acting, but for the humanitarian work he does through Newman's products. However, this book is just plain awful. I've read many movie star biographies (and autobiographies), and this is the worst, by far. The author is clearly biased against Joanne Woodward, and makes catty remarks about her throughout the entire book. He doesn't state his sources, and it seems like most of the quoted statements are negative (for Paul AND Joanne). I have a feeling that the author is one that simply cranks out star biographies for the buck, writing with a preconceived notion of his subject, not taking the time or effort to really investigate. It's also very badly written. This book is garbage and I can't even bring myself to finish it. Time to find another biography of Newman to read - hopefully there is a better one out there!

5つ星のうち 1.0 smear job 2010/1/8
投稿者 J. Barber - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
This book is awful, and unreadable for its unrelenting assault on Newman's character, paragraph after paragraph - it becomes irritating, laughable almost. And Quirk's preoccupation with homosexuality and all things homoerotic is tiring, absurd and just plain stupid. Again, an irritating read - I can think of no better word. Save your money.
