Gary Cooper at High Noon: A One-Person Play in ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Gary Cooper was a Hollywood icon whose career spanned over thirty-five years. Many of his films, including Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Sergeant York, The Pride of The Yankees, and High Noon, are still revered by audiences and critics well over half a century after his death. On screen, “Coop” may have been America’s staunch hero, but in private life, he was anything but that. A man of indecision, he enjoyed torrid romances with the likes of Clara Bow, Lupe Velez, and Ingrid Bergman, as well as a three-year relationship with actress Patricia Neal, which almost brought an end to his marriage.Michael B. Druxman’s Gary Cooper at High Noon finds the 50-year-old actor at a critical point in his life. Dealing with health issues and no longer a major box-office draw, he has accepted the role in High Noon at a fraction of his usual fee, and now, as he sits in his dressing room, he ponders his deteriorating bond with Patricia Neal, as well as what to do about his friend, Carl Foreman, the screenwriter of High Noon who is about to be blacklisted. Gary Cooper has reached a point in his life where he must make a life-changing choice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Shafer.

How Can I Keep from Singing?: The Ballad of Pet...
22,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

How Can I Keep from Singing? is the compelling story of how the son of a respectable Puritan family became a consummate performer and American rebel. Updated with new research and interviews, unpublished photographs, and thoughtful comments from Pete Seeger himself, this is an inside history of the man Carl Sandburg called 'America's Tuning Fork.” In the only biography on Seeger, David Dunaway parts the curtains on his life. Who is this rail-thin, eighty-eight-year-old with the five-string banjo, whose performances have touched millions of people for more than seven decades? Bob Dylan called him a saint. Joan Baez said, 'We all owe our careers to him.” But Seeger's considerable musical achievements were overshadowed by political controversy when he became perhaps the most blacklisted performer in American history. He was investigated for sedition, harassed by the FBI and the CIA, picketed, and literally stoned by conservative groups. Still, he sang. Today, Seeger remains an icon of conscience and culture, and his classic antiwar songs, sung by Bruce Springsteen and millions of others, live again in the movement against foreign wars. His life holds lessons for surviving repressive times and for turning to music to change the world. 'This biography is a beauty. It captures not only the life of the bard but the world of which he sings.” -Studs Terkel 'A fine and meticulous biography . . . Dunaway has taken [Seeger's] materials and woven them into a detailed, interesting, and well-written narrative of a most fascinating life.” -American Music 'An extraordinary tale of an extraordinary man [that] will intrigue not only his legions of followers but everyone interested in one man's battles and victories.” -Chicago Sun-Times

On the Wing
21,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Vivid, immediate, and irreverent, a memoir of a young woman's coming-of-age in London during the 1950's. 'This is a terrific memoir that is more than a memoir; it is also a portrait of a group of people (actors, writers, filmmakers). But, more interesting still is the portrait Nora Sayre gives of her self as a young woman trying to find her way in the world--trying to discover her own fate.' Wendy LesserWhen Nora Sayre arrived in London she quickly joined a circle of artists, many of them blacklisted Americans. On the Wing is a wry, elegant, and exacting account of an extraordinary group of people --Graham Greene, Oona and Charlie Chaplin, Tyrone Power, Cyril Connolly, A. J. Liebling, and many more.

Who Was Pete Seeger?

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pete Seeger was an American folk musician and social activist whose outspoken songs about freedom and justice got him blacklisted from radio and TV for years. Pete Seeger was still singing and playing the banjo for tens of thousands of fans even when he was at the age of ninety-four. Born in New York City on May 3, 1919, Pete came from a family of musicians. Despite writing and singing folk songs that all of America knows, not many kids know his name. Why? Because his ties to the Communist Party got him banned from radio and television for many years! Well-known for his civil rights activism with Martin Luther King Jr., Seeger also spearheaded efforts that cleaned up the Hudson River and made it beautiful again. His best-known songs include 'Where Have All the Flowers Gone?', 'If I Had a Hammer' and 'Turn, Turn, Turn.' In this easy-to-read biography from the New York Times best-selling series, Pete Seeger is revealed as not just a performer but as a champion for a better world and the eighty illustrations contained in the book help bring his story to life.
