The sparkling memoir of an actor's life in the footlights and on camera, this volume tells the riveting story of Eli Wallach on stage and screen. Beginning with his early days in Brooklyn and his college years in Texas, where he dreamed of becoming an actor, this book follows Wallach's career as one of the earliest members of the famed Actors Studio, and a Tony Award winner. Wallach has worked with such stars as Marlon Brando, Paul Newman, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, and Henry Fonda, and his many movies include "The Magnificent Seven", the iconic "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", and, most recently, "Mystic River". For more than fifty years, Eli Wallach has held a special place in the hearts of film aficionados and theatre goers the world over.

Review:

PRAISE FOR THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND ME"[Wallach is] an excellent tour guide through his life, from Red Hook to the Army to Broadway and the big and small screens. [He] is a born observer, and he has a simple, direct writing style that makes him seem like just one of the guys . . . He comes across as a man who's had a helluva lot of fun entertaining us."-VARIETY"The directness and unpretentiousness of [Wallach's] work is in the same spirit that animates his straightforward and charming memoir . . . [He] has you right where he wants you-in the palm of his hand, taking the same pleasure in this performance that you've taken in his others."-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
