Jack Lemmon Tribute by Chris Lemmon
As a special Father’s Day treat, beginning on Tuesday, June 11th, Movie Addict Headquarters is presenting an ON DEMAND encore discussion of A Twist of Lemmon, the acclaimed book Chris Lemmon wrote about his father Jack Lemmon, one of Hollywood’s greatest movie stars. Chris has created a touching memoir, one that reveals the beloved family man behind Jack Lemmon’s star persona.
But, happily for movie fans, he includes many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories relating to his father’s remarkable movie career as well as personal tributes from such well-known show biz greats as Neil Simon, Blake Edwards, Cliff Robertson, Andy Garcia, Julie Andrews, Tony Curtis and Shirley MacLaine.
Jack Lemmon was a convincing actor in so many wonderful films, including Days of Wine and Roses, Mr. Roberts, Some Like It Hot, The Odd Couple, Save the Tiger, The Apartment, Missing and The China Syndrome. He was skilled at doing both comedy and drama equally well – and moviegoers couldn’t seem to get enough of him.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Chris chose show biz as his career. Among the highlights of his impressive background are appearances – three with his dad (Airport ’77, Missing and The China Syndrome.)
Chris is also a screenwriter, producer and musician.
This “Jack Lemmon Tribute by Chris Lemmon” will be featured ON DEMAND on BlogTalkRadio from June 11 through the end of June, 2019. Listeners can hear the show at any time by clicking on the link below.
