The official biography of the Oscar-winning actor of Cocoon, and the great radio actor, Don Ameche. Written with the aid of the Ameche family, this first book features over 100 rare photos and many interviews with family and friends. Foreword by John Landis, director of Trading Places. With over 100 pictures! "Wonderful book! Your writing captured the dimension of Ameche during the years when he was at his best. We all thank you for that. You captured his sensitivity." - - Ted Key, creator of Hazel, and Disney screenwriter ..".pleasing new biography. It's a lineaer, clearly written book, based in large part on the author's privileged access to Ameche family members and papers. Ohmart has dug out career and personal nuggets that give intriguing pictures of Ameche (a more complex man than his fans ever imagined), of a changing Hollywood, and the perils of mixing career ambition with responsibilities as a husband and father. Author Ben Ohmart (also the founder of Bear Manor books) has put together a touching biography--not in the sentimental sense, but in its clear-eyed view of how one man and his family struggled against the vicissitudes of Hollywood life. This is a very human book about a superb talent." - Filmfax
