The sparkling memoir of a movie icon's life in the footlights and on camera, The Good, the Bad, and Me tells the extraordinary story of Eli Wallach's many years dedicated to his craft. Beginning with his early days in Brooklyn and his college years in Texas, where he dreamed of becoming an actor, this book follows his career as one of the earliest members of the famed Actors Studio and as a Tony Award winner for his work on Broadway. 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, How the West Was Won, 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 film and theater, and in a tale rich with anecdotes, wit, and remarkable insight, he recounts his magical life in a world unlike any other. Eli Wallach was born in Brooklyn, and he and his wife of fifty seven years, Anne Jackson, were recently named the King and Queen of Brooklyn. Eli Wallach remains active in film and on stage and lives in New York City. Interviewed by Sam Adams, Philadelphia City Paper
