Dear Members,

I'd like to recommend to you ''In and Out of Character'' (if you haven't already read it ;) ), Basil Rathbone's autobiography.


Book Description

Publication Date: August 1, 2004

Description:
Long out of print and virtually impossible to find even in the rare book market, this autobiography recalls to life one of the most eminent actors of his time. Sherlock Holmes fans will be much interested in Basil Rathbone's remarks on the character with whom he has been so closely identified.

Reviews:
Rathbone's book is full of the lore and magic of a wonderful era in the art form of the 20th century called the movies. He gives us candid and insightful information on some of the original giants of the industry. Rathbone is romantic yet concise and realistic. His anecdotes are often hilarious...sometimes sad, always involving. The stories of his personal life show that qualities like true love, loyalty and dedication do exist in the fickle, often ruthless world of show business. Rathbone's account of his psychic experiences involving his brother is especially intriguing, and his devotion to his wife Ouida Bergere is moving. His advice on acting is right on and should be part of any aspiring or working actor's education. It is an intelligent book by a talented artist and decent human being.
Review written by David Macklin

"Basil Rathbone's book about himself...is better written than most books by or about actors and is more intellectually vigorous...Sherlock Holmes fans will be much interested in his remarks on the character with whom he has been so closely identified." -Library Journal "Quite naturally full of memories, full of names, full of glimpses of stars of stage and screen of yesterday and today."
