Reflections: A Life in Two Worlds

£19.99

Product description

Very clean tight copy. Dust jacket in fair condition, slight tear to bottom left with slight creasing. In this remarkable personal memoir, Ricardo Montalban tells the story of his life in two worlds. Well known to stage, screen, and television audiences as an international star, the debonair Montalban is here revealed to be a devoted husband, a dedicated father, and a man of deep religious belief. Reflections intertwines and connects his public and personal lives and shares the ways in which his faith and his loving family life helped him to win the struggle for success in a precarious business. The suave star of TV's popular series 'Fantasy Island' recounts hi childhood and early acting success in his native Mexico, his graduation to Hollywood, where he has performed in such diverse roles as a Kabuki dancer in Sayonara, Don Juan in Shaw's play Don Juan in Hell, and where he has won an Emmy for his performance as a Sioux chieftain in the television miniseries 'How the West Was Won.' He also speaks candidly aobut his lifelong battle against being stereotyped as a 'Latin lover.' He discusses the prejudice, both personal and professional, that he encountered and overcame, as well as the joy and support he received from his wife, Georgiana Young, with whom he has shared a life that emerges as an inspiring account of a man dedicated to his work, his family, and his faith.
