Burt Lancaster: An American Life

New York, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000. First Edition. Hardcover. Burt Lancaster (1913–1994) was an Oscar Award winning actor, whose oeuvre is widely hailed as one of the most impressive in the medium. Initially known for playing tough guys with a tender heart, he went on to achieve success with more complex and challenging roles over a 45-year career in films and television series. Starring in classics such as “The Rainmaker” (1956); “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral” (1957); “Run Silent, Run Deep” (1958), “Field of Dreams” (1989), and many other films and television series. Lancaster had many health issues and eventually succumbed to a heart attack in ‘94, but to this day is remembered as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time. “Burt Lancaster: An American Life”, written by Kate Buford, brings to life his vivid, memorable on-screen presence as well as the off-screen life he kept intensely reclusive. The first writer to successfully win over Lancaster's widow and close friends, Buford has written an intimate story of one of the last great unexamined Hollywood lives, capturing both the golden boy and the husband, philanderer, and oftentimes misunderstood man. Buford's portrait is compelling, comprehensive, intelligent, intimate, and profoundly revealing.
