First time in paperback, this is a very personal portrait of an actor audiences loved, written by his actor son.Jack Lemmon (1925-2001) was one of our most beloved movie stars, a two-time Academy Award winner for "Mister Roberts" and "Save the Tiger". In "A Twist of Lemmon", Chris Lemmon shares family tales, intimate father-son conversations, and anecdotes from and about his dad. Joining Chris are first-person tributes from Blake Edwards, Andy Garcia, Julie Andrews, Tony Curtis, Neil Simon, Shirley MacLaine, and Cliff Robertson, among others. --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。

There are few if any "Stars" in Hollywood who were so universally loved, admired and cherished as was his Dad. It's wonderful to ride along with Chris and share his memories of Jack Lemmon.
When he took his kids fishing, there were no cameras around. It was just them. No fanfare. He didn't do things like that for accolades.
Lemmon was immensely proud of his children and their successes, although he would have preferred to have been the one to have made the cut at Pebble Beach. ;-) Still, he was Chris' biggest fan.
This book will make you laugh, appreciate Jack Lemmon even more, if that is possible, and cry a little. But if it DOES make you cry, they will be tears of joy.
I've been looking a long time for the right book regarding Jack Lemmon, and the best biography is about thirty years old. This more than fills the gap. Thank you, Chris Lemmon, for telling us such SUPER stories! (And I would have love the sequel to THE GREAT RACE.)
